November News!
            I am so proud of the overall progress our students are making with our newly adopted reading and language arts curriculum! As a team, we are working hard to ensure success with your children and so much appreciate your continued efforts at home.
            This year in grades one and two, we have introduced a new model for reading instruction. Instead of dividing the students into three groups shared between myself and the homeroom teachers, we are blessed to have, for the first time, the additional teaching support of our wonderful instructional aides during our daily reading classes, thus allowing for small group rotations. The homeroom teachers continue to introduce the weekly anchor stories, comparing fiction/non-fiction story selections, along with spelling, and grammar practice, while Mrs. Legnon and Mrs. McKenna focus on sight word practice, vocabulary, grammar, skill practice pages and/or weekly packets. I continue to teach fluency building strategies, including phonemic awareness, sound discrimination, both new and review, word families, blending strategies, and decoding practice with words, sentences and weekly stories. Copies of these decodable stories are sent with the students each week to share and practice with you at home.
            My thanks to the many parent volunteers who help with our primary program in the  classrooms. Your support means the world to us! 
God Bless!

We have had a fun-filled start to the new school year!
Our K-2 classroom reading group rotations, along with our 3rd grade "Walk To Reading" groups have been up and running since September. A big thank you to those 1st grade parents who have volunteered their time each week to help with our youngest readers!
This trimester I have also had the opportunity to administer individual reading assessments to all students in grades one and two, including the Dolch High Frequency Word Lists in grade two.  Third grade reading assessments were completed in homerooms, as well as in my reading group. Your child's homeroom teacher will be sharing the results during our November conferences. If you would like to access a copy of the K-3 Dolch Lists and/or the K-8 Fry High Frequency Word Lists for your child to practice sight word reading, spelling, and writing at home, please click on "Links" below and scroll down until you find the two lists by name.
