Our new unit is about bigger books and bigger reading muscles. The children are beginning to read books which have more words and sentences. They are very excited to read these new books!
The children are very fast at noticing the patterns within our stories. Continue to have your child to do this for you at home.
Next, we are reviewing how ABC books help us to use our "Sound Power" for letters and sounds in both our reading and writing. We will be introducing how to find the small parts of the words to help us stretch out the word to read it. The children will learn to focus on the beginning, the ending, and try to find the letters/sounds in the middle they know.
Please encourage your child to practice these skills at home to help build his/her confidence. This is a little tricky for them as they begin this next step into reading.
