Week 4 Griffin Gazette

This week during Reading Workshop we kick off our Scott Foresman Reading Curriculum while learning "ROUTINES" from the Daily 5. Please click on the links to learn more.
Preview our week: 
Concept question - How do we get to school?
READaloud - The little school bus by Carol Roth (rhyming story)
Comprehension skill: Character
Letter Recognition - A,B,C,D,E
SNAP words (words that your child should learn and know in a snap) - I, AM
Tuesday - Thursday (Your child will be bringing home a book on their level) to practice at home with you. I like to call them LAP books (so that your child sits in your lap and reads to or with you). 
DAILY FIVE SKILL - IPICK *good fit book
I - Choose the book
P- Purpose, Why do I want to read it?
I- Interest, Does it interest me?
C- Comprehend, Do I understand what I am reading?
K- Know, I know most of the words.
(Your child will learn this skill and practice it every day. Please help out at home by following the same guidelines when you are at the bookstore, the library, or in your own home. Children who learn to select good-fit books will no longer wander aimlessly in a library or classroom collection looking for a book.)
