We are still learning the new reading curriculum together. Next week, we will once again have 15 spelling words to try it out for one more week. I will look at their spelling tests this weekend and see hwo they do before I decide whether we should lessen the amount of words or move to a different spelling program all together. From what I've heard thus far, it seems as if the students are doing well with the words and have been up to the challenge. Please let me know if you have any concerns or whether you feel the words are appropriate.
The students have also been doing really well with our reading block. We are up to 20 minutes of reading!! I think that is amazing for the first full week of school! I am definitely seeing a shift where they are loving to read "real" books. :) It's been a wonderful transition to be a part of!
