The children in EPS 1 are doing great things with even more to come! We are now moving our focus to the in’s and out’s and all around’s of our books. Not with the focus on how to read, but where to begin. We will use different activities which will teach us to start left and read right. We will also talk about the predictions they can make from the pictures in the stories.
During the month of February, we got a tiny head start on these skills to get a better idea of exactly where we are. One fun game you may have seen us do before, and will see again, is replacing (some) words with pictures. This helped the children to read and finish these sentences along with me.
If you are wondering how you can help at home, the parent portal above the carpet space will have new reading materials with take-home games and activities on how to jump start your child’s love for words, letters, and reading. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer some time to come in to the room and read with us, get with Ms. Bailee on a time that would be good for you.
