This “Refrigerator Copy” is a quick reference for students and parents. It can be sent home weekly for students to place on the “refrigerator” for reinforcement of skills being covered in class. Each page includes the Question of the Week, Spelling Words, Amazing Words, Amazing Words Definitions and High Frequency or Vocabulary Words. For Unit R, there are no spelling words given; however there is a blank space for you to write them in. In addition, a comprehension skill and strategy are featured. In first grade this refers to the following:
“ Skill is the destination, Strategy is the journey.”
For example in Unit 1 Week 1 the comprehension skill is Characters and in order to accomplish this students must use the comprehension strategy of Questioning.
Includes "Refrigerator Copy" Handouts of skills from Common Core Aligned 2013 Reading Street Edition First Grade - Units R-5. In addition, I have included a parent letter with an explanation for the "Refrigerator Copy".
