Things to Practice at Home This Week

Phonics: Practice creating stories with our phonics sounds for this week: sh, th, kn, ng.  Create a list of words with these sounds in them.

Reading: Students should be reading the books from their book bag each evening.  Book bags need to come to/from home and school just like the red take home folder does.  We will use the books in their book bag each day in class so they will need them everyday.
