  ©moonlight crafter 2019   Literacy News  Agendas Everyday your child should be bringing home their agenda. I feel agendas help student’s practice responsibility and helps them to be well informed about while is happening in their school. It is important that this book is signed and returned daily. The front pocket will also be used to carry important letters and completed work to and from school. I also love how parents get to see their child’s writing daily and witness how much it grows throughout the year. Word Work/Spelling On the back of this newsletter I have included a list of “No Excuse” spelling words. These are words from grade one that we will be reviewing throughout the month of September. Students are encouraged to first recognize these words by sight, then,beable to spell them.Word work is promoted and encouraged because these words are commonly used in books your child is reading and used often in their writing.  After we complete our study of “No Excuse” words, we will then begin a program called “Words Their Way”. This program helps identify patterns in spelling, so that they can apply this understanding when spelling new words. I will provide addition information when we begin in October. From this list, I will mainly focus on these commonly misspelled words: of, the, that, my, our, said, I, with, you, they, what, was, because Reading Incentive Program We are going to celebrate our reading success as a class with a classroom prize for every 100 books read. Since I am already asking you to sign agendas every night, I am hoping it would be easiest to record reading there too . Just a little “Read tonight!” beside your signature. 15 minutes of reading is all it takes. If you choose to read to your child some nights, that also counts. There are so many benefits to reading to your child. My hope is that this reading program is easy on everyone involved! Home Readers  At St. Catherine, we recognize the importance of reading at home every night. Not only is this amazing bonding time for your family, but it promotes literacy growth. Therefor students are encouraged to exchange home readers every morning (unless you wish to read the same reader more than once, which is WONDERFUL). Home readers will begin in a few weeks once reading assessments are complete. These books will be at their independent level. This means that it will be “easy” for them as they will be able to read most of the words by themselves. I will be challenging them within the classroom. The main goal of home reading is practice and building confidence. If they can enjoy the experience of reading with a loved one every nightthey are more likely to be life long readers. Library  Along with a home reader students are able to sign out one choice book “picture book or beginner chapter books). This book will be exchanged every week. Our scheduled library time is Thursday!  ©moonlight crafter 2019
