We have started our Take Home Book Program! Today, your first grader brought home a just right book to read to you. This book should be easy to read with very few tricky words. This practice of reading just right books is essential for building confidence and excitement about reading. For more tips on how to support your child, look for the Reading at Home paper in the take home bag. Keep this resource handy whenever you read with your child. On the back of the paper are animal strategies for solving tricky words. We will be reintroducing these in the next few weeks. These fun strategies were taught in kindergarten so your child may remember them.
After your child reads these take home books once or twice to you, please help him/her remember to return the books to school in the take home baggie. This is a great way for your first grader to learn responsibility!
