This is the letter to parents explaining the booklet:
This booklet will come home with your child every night. It is very important that your child reads the Dolch word list and corresponding sentences on each page. Once your child has mastered reading a word list (by color), the teacher will write the date and initial next to the “color” they have mastered for reading (“Read”). Students are checked once a week in this booklet. The help your child receives at home in this booklet is crucial to their reading success. Once your child has mastered reading all 220 words, he or she will start over on the word lists learning to spell the words. Once your child has mastered “spelling” a word list, the teacher will write the date and initial next to the “color” they have mastered for spelling (“Spell”). After your child has completed a list, it is necessary to periodically review that list to help in the retention of the words. Students will not be checked on the sentences. These sentences are to help the students read the “learner” words in the sentences and for practice.
This includes an assessment record/ parent letter with parent signatures. Pages 12-21 are in black and white to make printing easier. It also includes a certificate of merit at the end of the packet! ENJOY!
