 One Minute Read:
Continue practicing the short vowel One Minute Read.  If your child is still working on the Priority Words, it would be a good idea to keep practicing that list too.  

Thank you for supporting your child in the homework process.  You are helping to instill good habits that will help them be successful in future grades.
1.  One Minute Read:  Be sure to practice daily.  Instructions are clear on it.  Return in folder on Friday.  I'm really noticing the students who are improving in this!!  It makes a HUGE difference in their reading!
2.  Word Family Practice:  Instructions are on it.
3.  Share homework

Don't forget to have your child complete the Daily Homework, nightly reading, and sight word flash cards.

Don't forget that taking time to read TO your child is extremely important.  You model fluency and voice as well as spend valuable time with your little one!

Dr. Seuss' Birthday
We will be celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday on Thursday!  We will be reading Dr. Seuss books and having green eggs and ham.  
Here's what we will need:
1.  1 dozen uncooked eggs
2.  24 slices of ham
3.  spoons
4.  small paper plates

Please message me if you can help out with any of these and send them on Wednesday.  

Book Bags:
We have another assessment to get through this week so you will not see book bags come home nightly.  Please have your child read from their book box nightly.

One School One Book:
We will continue to read and ask the students questions each day.  The students have a chance to win a prize if they know the answer.

3 Piggy Opera:
Your child may have mentioned a play we will be performing for you.  We will perform our 3 Piggy Opera play on March 10th.  That is a minimum day.  You won't want to miss it so mark your calendars.
