As children are beginning to adjust to Kindergarten it is important to encourage reading with your child so students will develop a love for reading. 

Have your child become involved in the reading process: have the child point to words, sound them out and encourage questions. 
Help your child to fill their reading log with books! Read with your child for 15 minutes daily (or more!) so your child develops a vast knowledge of vocabulary, sounds and thinking strategies. 

  • Red folder: Your child will be receiving the Fundations folder weekly as it allows your child to practice the enclosed letters with a dry erase practice board. Fundations helps children practice letter/sound recognition to encourage later reading. 
  •  Blue Daily Folder: The homework/communication folder contains envisions math, scholastic and other homework assignments that may go home with your child. This is also where notices will be sent home. 
  • Blue Bag: Your child's reading log will help children gain a love of reading. Reading to children every night will help children understand that letters are made of spoken words that have meaning. Rereading to your child will help your child with comprehension and will help your child gain a confidence of reading texts fluently. 
      • Encourage your child to read along with you.

      • Discuss important elements of the beginning, middle and end and make predictions.
