Reading: Please remind your child to read each night at home and sign the ‘reading log’. Reading logs will be checked each day in class. Your child may bring home a new book that has been taught in the guided reading group or it might be familiar book of their own choice from their individual browsing box.
Spelling: We are progressing through our spelling turtles. Please remember to take some time each week to learn the words and bring the spelling book for testing at the end of the week.
Library: Library day for Room 4 is Friday. Children will be able to take two books home each week. Please remember to bring library books back Friday mornings and pop them into the library books box in the classroom.
Basic Facts: We are beginning to work on improving our basic facts recall each day in class. (adding and subtracting up to ten). Please encourage your child to practise them at home, using games and trying to increase speed and develop instant recall.
