Wow, we made it through the first two months of the school year. Time is flying by. Each day your student comes to school, he/she is growing and learning. During the month of September we began trading classrooms for Success Period. This means that students travel within the building to another teacher for Small Group instruction for 30 Minutes of a targeted teaching at their level. Our First Success Period Focus Standard was Identify Lowercase Letters of the Alphabet. Students matched the Upper and Lowercase Letters, Wrote the letters, practice reading the alphabet chart, practiced finding the letter in a sentence, matching the magnetic letters to the alphabet chart and many more activities. Students are also practicing Identifying and writing the letters in their first name, being able to read all the letters, put the letters in their name together in their name puzzle and to write their name using the first letter in Uppercase and the remaining letters in lowercase. Thank you to all parents who are practicing the same skills at home.
Students are growing in their letter knowledge. Our goal is for 100% of students to know their Upper and Lowercase letters by Thanksgiving. At this time your students scores are as follows:
185/280 know 40-52 Letters of the Alphabet, this is 66% of our Students. We need your help. Please practice each night at home. If you have spare time during the day, love to work with children, have a Background check on file, let us know. We can get you trained on Finger Tracing. Together, all children can succeed!
In Partnership with You,
Encouraging regular school attendance is one of the most powerful ways you can prepare your child for success—both in school and in life. When you make school attendance a priority, you help your child get better grades, develop healthy life habits, avoid dangerous behavior and have a better chance of graduating from high school.
When students are absent for fewer days, their grades and reading skills often improve—even among those students who are struggling in school. However, when students are absent for an average of just two days of school per month—even when the absences are excused– it can have a negative impact. Students who miss two school days or more per month often have difficulty keeping up with their peers academically and tend to fall behind in reading. Students who attend school daily and are able to read on grade level are more happy and successful in life.
