The children will be getting a book called Horrible Harry and the Holidaze. This is a book that should be "Read to" or "Read with" your child. There are 7 chapters so you will have time to read a chapter every couple of days. I think they will enjoy the story AND love snuggling up with you to share it.
You probably know we have been working on main idea and details. We also started writing summary statements or topic sentences with guidance and support. We will begin to expand on this by adding a few detail sentences to support the main idea.
I have created a journal to accompany the book, Horrible Harry and the Holidaze. Participating students will complete an organizer and write a summary sentence of each chapter as a reading response. They may also try to include some details with your support. Discussing each chapter is a great way to solidify their understanding and prepare them to write a response.
Let me know if you are interested in having your child participate in this winter break reading and writing activity.
Never forget, you are your child's 1st and most important teacher.
