- Happy New Year everyone! I hope you are all happy to get back to a routine again. I know I am. This week I am starting the homereading program. Your child will bring home a book every evening. Please spend 10 or 15 minutes reading with your child. Research has proven that it makes a difference to your child's success. Here are some things you might do:
*take a picture walk - look at all the pictures first
*choose some simple words and create rhymes
*have your child re-tell the story
*please make sure your child has gym shoes at school. Some of the girl's shoes are causing them a bit of a problem in the gym. Also, it is getting muddy out there and the kids are tracking in a lot of dirt.
*on Thursday we are going to the Young People's Concert at the Sagebrush Theatre.
*take a moment to look at some of the websites I have included on the 'links' page.
Enjoy your week. Cheers. Sheila
