After 3 days and 4 nights with a text, several children could not identify key details. Instructionally, I'm concerned about children not being able to do this. As we talked about it, a lot of children acknowledged that they had only read the book on the first night and for many that was only 1 time. The less they interact with the text, the harder it is for them to build comprehension, improve fluency and master the standards being taught.
I need your help to ensure they read a minimum of 20 minutes each night which includes repeated readings of their Baggie Book. Most 1st graders need an adult to help facilitate this as part of a nightly routine.
1st grade is an opportunity to set your child on a path for success in school. This begins by establishing a path built on scholarly habits that will guide them through the learning years and indeed life. Everything we do now will have an impact for years to come and is a sound investment in their future.
Thank you for all you do. Remember YOU are your child's 1st and most important teacher!
