On Friday of each week, all students will be tested over the spelling words and dictation sentence along with the sight words. Please continue to practice all sight words that are learned through the year because this will help your child a lot as they are learning to read and improving in their reading skills. Along with the homework listed, you will find a fluency practice passage in your child’s homework packet each week. This is important for them to practice each night because as they improve in reading, their fluency must improve. When we DRA test, the higher leveled books are timed so these passages are excellent practice to prepare your child for that. Please also make sure your child is reading every night, they have the option to read their take home reader, library book, or any book you have at home. Make sure you sign their reading log each night so they can read their reading goals and get Book It! coupons for free pizza!
