Reading
We are using our Wilson program to practice tapping out short vowel words. We are also using our Readers workshop to discuss all about what it means to be a reader and how to develop great reading habits. In the near future, you will see students coming home with level book baggies to practice their reading nightly. 

Every Monday, the students will receive new trick words to add to their word  notebook.  These need to be reviewed on a daily basis with the suggested activities.  Please review the special sound for the week as well. Continue all the amazing reading with the weekly logs!
