Parents Homework this week is to work on Letters, Sounds, and reading these high frequency words I, am, the, to, a, little, is, have, we, like, is, he, for, my, me, she, with, they, of, you, are, that, do, go, from, here, said, what, was blue, red, yellow, brown, purple, white, green, black, pink,  zero, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, and ten. Please work with your child on the letter names and sounds. Also, work on the practice sheets I sent home. We are working really hard on your child being able to write their name. Any chance they get encourage them to work on this. All of these things help with learning to become readers.


 Parents we have had some teachers find apps that have helped their child timed letter names, sounds, and sight words. The apps are called Hairy words 1 and 2, and Hairy Letters. These apps cost $2.99 each but, I thought someone might be interested. First grade has really had success with these.


Please label money when you send it. Sometimes it’s hard to figure out where it needs to go.

For Easter I do Easter baskets. I provide the baskets and the grass. I ask parents that can to send 16 of something to go in the baskets. (Example candy, little toys, pencils, etc.) I do have some plastic eggs. I’ll send home more information closer to time. Thank you so much!
