This was designed to go along with the McGraw Hill Wonders Reading 2014 curriculum. My school requires a weekly newsletter to go home to insure parents are well informed of the skills being taught.
The skills that are listed are as follows: Reading Strategy, Reading Skill, Genre, Vocabulary Skill, Writing Trait, Grammar, and Phonics. Vocabulary words with definitions from the book, spelling words, and the weekly essential question are also included. Spelling words are listed so that the most relevant words for below level readers are listed in the first 12 words. This way you can easily assign a reduced spelling list if needed.
THIS IS COMPLETELY EDITABLE! You can add or subtract spelling/vocab. words, you can change definitions, you can edit, add or take away skills. This is meant to make your life easier. If you or your district has changed your sequence in any way, you can change it on this weekly newsletter. If you have an updated version of Wonders, this will still work for you. The only thing you can't edit is the format and graphics as the graphics have a copy write.
There is also room for you to add other subject areas, contact information, or just reminders that you would like parents to know about.
