Students will be learning how to read in Kindergarten. I will be teaching them concepts to learn how to read in small reading groups, reading leveled texts. Our goal is for your child to read a Level D text by the end of the school year; however, many will be much higher. Books will be sent home via “Book Baggies”, which are large Ziploc bags containing one book and a reading log. It will be your responsibility to practice this book with your child and sign the reading log. I typically send home 2 books per week.
Please understand that successful reading includes mastery of letter identification of lower and uppercase letters, letter sounds and memorized sight words. This is crucial for good fluency and comprehension. These skills should also be practiced right before you start the “Book Baggie” as a warm up.
