Reader's Workshop We are continue to work on retelling. The students will work on retelling using story elements (setting, character, problem/solution, and ending) and important details IN SEQUENCE. This is an important, yet difficult, concept for children. We encourage you to work on this at home with your child. When you are finished reading, ask your child to retell the story. Help them use transitional words such as "first, second, third..." etc. or "first, next, then, finally..." The goal of this unit it to help the children monitor their reading and enhance comprehension.
Please remember to read with your child daily for at least 15-20 minutes!

Home Learning We are continuing to assign TenMarks math practice at home. Many families have asked for additional practice. We have added these and extended the due date. Please have your child sign in two times per week. This way, the assignment will not be overwhelming and can be finished even though your families are so busy! Also, if your child finishes all of the assignments and is looking for additional practice, the Jam Sessions on TenMarks are engaging and beneficial.
Please remember that students should log on to RazKids at least two times per week. Your child's log-in information is taped to the inside cover of their BEE book. This is excellent practice that will enhance your child's reading experiences. Enjoy! In addition to RazKids, continue to have your child read the book he/she brings home in his/her Bee Book each night.
