How to Help Us Drive Them Home
North School is continuing to work on reading this year by emphasizing a strategy a month for the students to master. Students receive two lessons a month in the media center focused on this specific strategy, then teachers work to incorporate that strategy across the curriculum the rest of the month. Our schedule for strategies are as follows:
January-assessing prior knowledge and making connections
February-fix up strategies, context clues, roots, prefixes and suffixes
May-main ideas and themes
Please try to highlight these topics at home as you and your child read together. Probe with a couple of quick follow-up questions to seal in your child's success!
