Home Reading Bags
Today our home reading and home work bags went home for the first time. The purpose of our home work is to build strong work habits in preparation for grade one, to reinforce skills learned in class and to provide some extra practice with our letter and sound knowledge. The Kinders are very excited, they feel like 'big kids' now that they have their own home work bags.
These bags will be sent home every Monday with a new book and some letter and phonological practice for students to do. Please return the bags with their books on Thursday. Please spend about 10 min on these jobs each night until they are completed. There is no need to spend lots of time on this.
We worked on the letter Aa last week in order to create a sample for parents so that you can see how we do this work. If you have any questions, please feel free to send me an email.
We also made a video this morning explaining the process.
