Classroom Happenings for March 18th – 22nd, 2019
Note: We are beginning our third reading unit this week! Unit three focuses on Changes in our world. Look for our new reading book to come home later this week.
Along with our new reading unit comes fluency testing for the students. Fluent reading is the ability to read smoothly without hesitation or needing to sound out words. At the end of each story, students will be timed for one minute reading a passage they have not seen before. At this point in the school year, students should be reading at least 45 words per minute. The best way to help your child be successful on these fluency assessments is to review the sight words in the green notebook often and to have your child read each and every night. Reading fluency is built with reading practice.
Just a reminder, Target gift cards or cash donations for our class basket can be sent in at any time. The deadline to send in your donation is April 12th.
