It is exciting to start the school year–a warm welcome back to you and your child! During the early weeks of school, we will review the skills taught in Kindergarten. This review period will also give us the opportunity to get to know your child better so we can identify his or her particular areas of strength and weakness in reading. It is important that we determine exactly what level of instruction is most appropriate for your child. Once we have completed our evaluations, your child will be placed in the instructional materials most appropriate for his or her learning needs. You will begin to see more examples of classwork, as well as homework, on a regular basis. It is important that parents become involved in the education of their child. If you would like information on how you can help your child at home, please do not hesitate to contact me. You will continue to receive periodic family letters that will give you tips and activities to do with your child at home. I look forward to teaching your child this year and helping each student to grow as a reader!

The Human Body
During the next several days, your child will be learning about the human body. S/he will learn about five important body systems: skeletal, muscular, digestive, circulatory, and nervous.
Below are some suggestions of activities to do at home to reinforce what your child is learning about how our bodies work to keep us alive.
1. What’s Inside My Body?
Ask your child to describe a body organ that s/he learns about each day. Have her/him tell you why the organ is important and the name of the body system to which it belongs.
2. Systems at Work
Ask your child which body systems are at work as you walk, talk, eat, and read together. Encourage the use of vocabulary being learned at school by asking your child to explain how the systems are working together.
3. Draw and Write
Have your child draw and/or write about what has been learned about each of the body systems and then share the drawing and/or writing with you. Ask questions to keep your child using the vocabulary learned at school.
