    • Literacy

      We are very busy continuing to become independent during our Managed Independent Learning stations. We continue to "build stamina" in our reading - most of the children will be reading independently for 15-20 minutes!  

      Reading groups have started and the students are super excited to be working closely with their teacher. We meet everyday for about 10-15 minutes. We work on many things while we are together in our small group. This might include high frequency word work, reading strategies, reading fluency, solving unknown words and writing responses to our reading. 

      Your child will continue to bring home a book bag each night. Please try to find a few minutes each night to read from this bag and return the books and the bag the next day. The children select 4 books from their browsing basket, 1 book of their choice from our class library and 1 reading group book. If you have any questions regarding this book bag, please contact your child's teacher.
