During the next two weeks, the students will learn about the significance of rereading. One way to introduce the is concept is to your child is to explain that when you read a book again and again it's just like seeing something new on the playground that you have already been to many times. You still have fun and enjoy it even though you have been there before.
Having your child reread a book will also help your child make the connections between the spoken and printed words. Reading a book again and again, gives the chance to think more and talk more and learn more. Readers who reread know that rereading means rethinking. You can ask about some of the details of the story for recall or ask about what does this story remind you about.

As we begin to grow some wonderful readers, the students will be learning the foundations needed. During this week and the year, we will learn the letters, sounds and how we use these sounds to try to sound out a word. The students will learn sight words that are commonly used in the books we read. We also will learn how to use our classroom library and how to treat and take care of our books.
