Writing My Name:
Parents, please allow your scholar to practice the cursive and manuscript formation of their first & last name daily. I will test scholars on the formation of their names on September 6th. Each scholar will be given a sheet of tablet paper (attached below) and asked to correctly write their first and last name in cursive and manuscript. Scholars must write neatly and correctly use the writing house lines (upstairs, downstairs, basement). Please refer to the formation guide in their binder for the proper formation of each letter.
Fantastic job to all who completed their handwriting practice packet last week! I hope you enjoy your eagle ticket! Parents, please continue practicing the cursive formation of letters as they are introduced. Please refer to the cursive formation guide in your scholar’s binder. I recommend purchasing a lined whiteboard (from Amazon, $1.25 Tree, Kroger, etc.) and allowing your scholar to practice with it. Also, you may print the tablet paper pdf attached and allow your scholar to practice using the writing house correctly with a dry-erase pocket.
Sight Word Tests:
Excellent job on your sight word tests, scholars! Parent, please continue helping your complete the assigned homework pages in your scholar’s sight word book. Please check your scholar’s binder for their progress. Scholars will continue testing on Fridays and must master their current list before moving on. Their final score for each list will be an average of their attempts. For example, if your scholar tests on list 2 three times, scoring a 60, an 80, and a 100, their final score will be an 80/C.
Check out our new poem in the updates section! Over the next two weeks, all scholars will study the poem, I Am the Black Child, by Mychal Wynn. We will practice reciting the poem with rhythm and great expression, and scholars must memorize the poem and will recite the poem on September 14th. Scholars will be graded on memorization, volume, enunciation, rhythm, and expression. We will discuss the poem’s meaning in class, and scholars will be reminded of their worth and importance as black children. Parents, I encourage you to reinforce this message at home.
Parents, please remind your scholar to stay focused and participate each day in each class. Scholars will receive a weekly participation score in writing and skills development. I am not looking for perfection, but your scholar must always obey and give their best. When scholars fail to follow instructions and give their best effort, their participation scores will drop. Thank you for partnering with me to ensure your scholar is focused and ready to learn daily!
