When we read our stories in our Imagine It! anthology, we are focusing on decoding skills using what we've learned about consonant blends, consonant diagraphs, vowels, syllables, and/or finding small recognizable words within the longer words. We are also working on comprehension skills in which your children can answer who, what, where, why, and when questions about the story - not only orally but in their written responses as well. We are now on Unit 3. All of our stories are from the theme "Around the Town."
Reminders: * The children should be reading at least 15 minutes a night.
* Work on the high frequency words at home.
* Ask the children questions about the story they are reading every night to check comprehension.
