We have been very busy learning new reading strategies. Ask your child to show you the four we have learned and practiced so far; they are picture read, read the words, retell a story, and EEKK, which stands for elbow to elbow and knee to knee. Looking at best fit books and sharing them with our friends is an important part of our day. Thanks to all those parents that have come in for a conference, your child has already grown in the first 30 days of school, it is amazing what they can do by themselves! Today I sent a letter home in their folders explaining ABCmouse.com and your access code to use at home. Please take advantage of this great website and the learning opportunity for your child. Don't forget book orders are due by the 17th which is tomorrow.
