Literacy

Superkids Literacy Program 

This year your child will read decodable stories about the Superkids and their teacher Ms. Blossom. Everyday your child will read from their decodable reader, work on word work in their workbook, read a magazine article, and participate in book club. All of the writing that we do is connected to what they are learning in reading. 

Please look for spelling words to come home every five days. The memory words are the words that they need to know how to spell from memory. These are sight words. Then there will be pattern words also included. Practice reading words with the weekly pattern throughout the week. The students will have a spelling test on the words every five days. Please check assignment notebooks for daily assignments and test dates.
