Soundwaves - New Spelling Program
Grade 1's have recently began our exciting new spelling program called Soundwaves.
Each week the students will be introduced to a new grapheme. Students can complete interactive activities at home to practise the grapheme at home.
We hope you are enjoying the benefits of Class Dojo. If you are having any problems using Class Dojo, please contact your class teacher and check the Class Dojo Parent Troubleshooting page by following the link https://classdojo.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/categories/200185365-For-parents.
Reading and Homework in Grade 1
Parents are now invited to come along to your child's reading sessions. Please see your child's teacher regarding session times and to put your name down if you are interested in attending.
Throughout the term your children have been learning about a some of the strategies, detailed below, that will help them read well. When reading at home they may be demonstrating these strategies to you... and sometimes even explaining them to you!
Homework expectations - Grade 1 students are expected to complete reading at home 5 nights per week and must have their yellow reading journals signed by parents. In the future, there may be some spelling component to student's homework from our Soundwaves program, and this will most likely be in lieu of one nights reading.
