Using fine motor skills helps develop handwriting skills in students. Therefore, I always have students practice correct cutting skills in the classroom. However, I sent this home to help parents understand how to best help kiddos cut with scissors.
Developing reading comprehension skills is a major goal in all classroom. These are the questions I use to help develop comprehension. It also includes a CELEBRATION sheet I use for anecdotal notes. Most importantly, I send the questions home to parents.
The beginning of reading starts with developing print concepts. Therefore, this note lists the print concepts beginning readers need to develop so I send this note home to help families understand all the things to focus on when reading.
This note explains how to help beginning readers learn and practice sight words because sight words do help with fluency. Therefore, learning how to learn sight words helps readers feel successful.
Using the free Seesaw app helps me with assessments. Students watch a Jack Hartmann counting video, a pattern lesson and then practice counting. When they record themselves, I save class time. I assign it at 3 different times of the year to see growth.
