Every week your child will meet in a small group to books at their reading level. We begin with simple sentences to reinforce sight words and concepts of print, as well as getting comfortable with this process. Reinforcing the sight words is very important and would be helpful if reviewed weekly at home. All of the kindergarten sight words are here on the website. I will send home the leveled book that your child reads in school - so your child may read to you at home. Please initial the envelope and return on the date indicated. This follow up reinforcement is critical and makes a big difference in a child's progress! Your child should be encouraged to use the picture clues and their letter/sound knowledge to figure out unknown words. The most important goal is for your child to see him/herself as a reader. These early feelings will set the foundation for future success!
