All students will participate in Literacy Boost centers during the literacy block. Students will receive instruction in the following areas:
- Phonics-FUNdations instruction helps students understand the connection between phonology and orthography
- Guided Reading-Students will use grade-level text and activities to begin their reading journey and prepare them to become fluent readers in sequential grades. Students will participate in direct sight word instruction, letter/sound naming, reading, and writing activities
- Sight Words-Students will practice a new sight word every week in addition to sight words they learn in Literacy instruction and Guided Reading.
- Centers-Centers will focus on the five components of literacy instruction: Phonics, Phonemic Awareness; Vocabulary; Fluency; Comprehension
Student will receive homework weekly consisting of a weekly activity guide, fluency passage, and decodable reader. Please complete the activities with your child and report any struggles your student may have on the homework sheets. These assignments are due the last day of the school week, usually Friday unless it is a short week. In addition, your student will also receive a poem we are practicing in class. I will send home the poem but it does not need to be returned. This exercise is to help students develop fluency, rhythm, and intonation while reading. It is also helpful in having students identify and use rhyme.
