This month we will be learning the "tricky y" and the "bossy r" along with a new picture book. The skills we learn through these books help with comprehension. We have been working on becoming "wise readers" which are readers that read the words and remember the story after. We don't worry about being fast!

Week 1: Tops and Bottoms and words with a y that make the long i sound: fly, sky, shy...

Week 2: Piggie Pie and word with a y that makes the long e sound: bunny, jelly, happy...

Week 3: Hey Little Ant and words that have a "ar": dart, barn, star...

Week 4: Chickens aren't the Only Ones and learning about animals that lay eggs and words with an "or": fork, horn, sort...


Books will also go home a couple times a week to read with your child. Please send these back quickly, even if they do not get read, so that they can be passed on to other children! These books may be ones we read together or books they picked out as "good fits." This means they tried to find something that wasn't too hard or too easy.
