Other important information:
You can go on our reading website so that your child may explore and continue to learn  reading skills at home. I have given everyone their password to log on (see highlighted white sheet in the homework folder). Your child learned to log on with the help of Mrs. Mobley's class. Thanks to Mrs. Mobley for making this possible! The decodables and some stories are on line too!

One minute timed reading homework
Next week we will start a new reading unit. Your child will bring book 3. You will notice that  there will be a new homework component.  We will begin one minute timed reading. The green sheet in the homework folder will explain the process. As I told you in the goal setting conferences,
by the end of first grade, your child should be reading 45 to 65 words a minute. With reading, practice makes perfect :0
