Dear Parents and Guardians,

Please check that your student is doing their homework.

Important things to know about homework are:

  • Please make sure your child reads TO you every night. They can check out books on Wednesday during library. However, if they need a new one before then, they can go before school.
  • The spelling words are part of the reading skills for that week so please check that they are doing one menu item nightly and returning the assignment to school every day.
  • I will send home a reading passage that your child needs to read to you nightly. There is 1 question to answer per day. Please sign and return these to me on Friday.
  • On the weeks that your child has word sorts in the zipper pouch in the front of the binder, please make sure they practice nightly.


We will work on the following skills in Reading this nine weeks:

  • Use consonants, consonant blends, and consonant digraphs to decode words.
  • Use knowledge of short, long, and r-controlled vowel patterns to decode and spell words.
  • Use information in the story to read words.
  • Use knowledge of sentence structure.
  • Use knowledge of story structure and sequence.
  • Reread and self-correct
  • Use vocabulary from other content areas.
  • Ask and answer questions about what is read in fiction and nonfiction.
  • Locate information to answer questions.
  • Describe characters, setting, and important events in fiction and poetry.
  • Identify main idea in fiction and nonfiction.
  • Summarize stories and events with beginning middle, and end in the correct sequence.
  • Draw conclusions based on text.

Week of October 16

This week we will learn about neighbors and neighborhoods. We will read stories about what it means to be a good neighbor. We will begin learning a letter of the alphabet each week. This week’s letter is Ss. We will be making spider hats and scarecrows. Your child will also make an S book that you can read with your child at home. Please continue to have your child practice the letters in his or her name. We are also practicing counting to 20 in class.


Home Activities:

  1. Ss Hunt – Page through newspaper or magazine headlines with your child looking for capital S and lowercase s. Circle the letters that you find. Look at the materials again and ask you child to point to each circled letter and say its name. Look for pictures or objects that begin with S.
  2. Sort objects – Have your child sort objects in your home by size, shape, or color. Then have her/him count how many objects are in each set.
  3. When reading books to your child, have him/her predict what might happen next, tell what happened first, next and last, and answer simple questions about the book.
  4. Color the Sammy Seal book and find the Ss in the book.
  5. Practice writing the letter S using the paper sent home in your child’s folder.


Suffolk Reader Bags:

*Blue Suffolk Reader bags are due back each Tuesday. We will send new bags each Wednesday.

*You can keep the bags at home until Tuesday so the book bags aren’t too heavy.
