We are off and using our new reading program. I am assessing all students at this time in math, reading, and on "Fry" words. I will be giving you more information on how you can help your child at home in math when we have our math night in September. I can tell you some students need practice with their sums of ten. Please use flashcards at home along with asking for the missing addend. e.g. 7+?=10. The better understanding your child has on sums of ten the easier it will be as we move forward. Practicing for a few minutes a night would be great! As for "Fry" words all students are required to know the first 100 by the end of first grade. I tested all students and some students knew all 100!!!!!! Those students who knew all 100 words will move to the second set of 100. (second grade level) and so on. I am sending those results home on Monday the 26th. I put the first 3 sets of fry words on my website along with a link so those who want to be challenged throughout the year can be! J This week I am working on running records. (listening to them read to assess their level) I will be putting them in reading groups once I am done!
