Thank you for ALL remembering to send your child in a white t-shirt.
Today your child will be bringing home their first sight word test. Sight words are words that they should be able to read automatically, sight words often cannot be sounded out. They were tested to see if they could read 11 color words. The ones checked with yellow are the words they could read. You’ll see at the bottom, Pre-test and post-test. Pre-test means I test them before we have worked with them in class or at home. Post-test is when I test them again on the same words a few weeks later after we have worked with the words in class and you have practiced the flashcards at home. You will receive the same paper home in a few weeks with their new score on it. This helps us to track the progress of the children. Please don’t worry if your child didn’t know any of the words, this is the pre-test and now we will be working to learn the words through various activities in class.
Congratulations to Ibrahim A., Leo, Maria and Rishab for reading all 11 words. They can now practice on spelling those words.
I will be sending home new sight words every few weeks for you to practice at home. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about this or anything else that we are doing in class.
I am pleased how well the children are doing and the progress they have already made so far this year. Their handwriting has really improved.
Just a reminder about Arabic folders. They are to come to school every Wednesday and the Arabic teacher will send them home every Thursday. Please help us try to keep up with this. We are seeing a lot of loose Arabic papers. Please let me know if you are not seeing a white Arabic folder coming home.
Please return the Kidzania permission slip as soon as possible along with the 80 dirhams. Be sure to talk over the food choice with your child as they are not allowed to change their minds later.
Sunday you will be receiving a letter about the Caring Box Initiative from PreK, KG1 and KG2.
Due to change in schedule we will be going to library on Wed. next week, not Sunday.
Thank you for all your support, it really makes a difference! Have a great weekend, Lois
