that you read at bedtime.  Point to them and see if your child can read them.  Please

Handwriting

Writing their first name and last name with a capital letter in the beginning and the rest
of the letters lowercase.  Please practice writing name this way.  Students often get in the
habit of writing their name in all capital letters and this is very hard to break.
Also practice writing letters that were taught.  Capital A - Z and lowercase a - z.  They
will be graded on how they write the letters
M, m, S, s, A, a, T,t,  C,c, P,p, A, a, N, n  
F, f and B, b, I, i, G, g
, R,r.  We are also focusing on identifying the middle vowel sound
in a word.  This week focusing on the letter
D, d.

Reading

Students will be tested on reading the take home readers that are copied on white paper.
Also, students are practicing blending and segmenting three letter words like hat, cat, cot,
kit, man, cut, top, mop.  We need to identify words that begin and end with
M, m, S, s,
A, a, T,t,  C,c, P,p, A, a, N, n  F, f, B, b, I, i
. G, g and R, r. Focus on identifying the
middle vowel sound in a word. This week words beginning with
