Literacy First

May Update

As this school year begins to wind down, I want to say that excellent things have been going on in your child’s classroom! As far as reading, your child has been given the tools to help them succeed at decoding and blending words together. They have practiced not only how to read in a fluent manner, but to read with expression, smoothness and phrasing. As your child prepares for the upcoming grade, please help keep their skills fresh during our nice, long summer break by try-ing some of these fun activities:

  • Go on a scavenger hunt – have a written list (or pictures) of things for your child to read and look for outside. Be creative!
  • Read and write a recipe of your favorite foods, then make that food.
  • Check out some funny poems from your library and read them in silly voices together.
  • Listen to books on cd or online, discuss the characters, setting, plot, etc.
  • Play “I Spy” using rhyming words, initial or final sounds, syllables, etc.
  • Read lyrics to their favorite songs and sing them.
  • Write compound words (or any words) in shaving cream, sand or play dough.
  • Use side-walk chalk to create words with prefixes and suffixes.
  • Read signs you see in your environment – billboards, businesses, etc.
  • Check out the Haysville Library
  • Check out some websites by Googling your child’s grade level + reading activities.

Have a wonderful and relaxing summer vacation ~ Don’t forget to READ!
