Your child will take home their Baggie Book Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday night. Their book should not be difficult. We have discussed it and read it in class.
Please see the yellow card inside their bag for guidelines and support. Your child should read aloud at least 2 times OR as many times as it take for them to read smoothly with no errors.
There is also a pink bookmark with reading strategies. Have them to refer it when they get stuck on a word. Not all words can be decoded by "sound it out". Your child has been taught many strategies for figuring out words so encourage them to use multiple strategies.
Check basic comprehension by asking them to identify the Who?, What?, Where?, When? of the book. They should also be able to tell you an opinion and identify the main idea through a summary statement.
Don't forget to sign the log when you're done
