October 13

A Few Things to Mention!
 
Sight Word Check-In:  Thanks so much for working on the sight words that have been coming home glued in your child's agenda each week!  I like to sit down and check in with your child every few weeks to keep an eye on how they are doing with these.  We just completed our first check in of the year, so keep your eyes open for a slip coming home letting you know how your child is doing!  
Note:  Once we have learned a sight word, that word becomes a word that we DONT guess at when spelling in our journals.  Today we introduced our very own dictionaries to keep in our desks.  These will help us spell those sight words correctly!
 
Home Reading:  Please keep your eyes open for a letter regarding home reading which will be coming home later this week.  You are being asked to choose from a few different options, according to what works best for your family. 
 
IMPORTANT DATES COMING UP:
