Reading: This week some reading groups have been working on skipping an unfamiliar word and reading around to gather context clues.
Other groups have been working on checking for understanding. At the end of each page, students stop and check in. "Did that make sense?" "What is happening?" "Who are the characters?" If there are any questions, or inability to answer comprehension questions, students are working on taking the time to reread for meaning.
You can try both of these reading strategies with your reader at home.
First Grade Parent Workshop: This workshop will be held on October 23rd from 8:30-10:00. Dr. Van Putten, our school psychologist will be in attendance to talk and answer questions. Parents will also be learning more about Kimochis and CGI.
