    Welcome to K - 2 Reading and Written language Pull Out Resource 2018/19

    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    Kindergarten through second grade language arts resource is a small group pull out program. The focus is daily intensive direct instruction in reading and written language with a focus on taking students from emergent to independent readers and writers.

    Rules and Routines
    Assignments for the week are written in the planner on Monday(or the first day of the school week). The assignments may be completed in school as well as at home. The independent assignments support the small group instruction. The assigned work is generally due on Friday(or the last day of the school week). 

    Rewards are provided for completed assignments. Please ask your child if they have a packet to complete for Mrs.Welch.  Children may choose a prize on Friday if all assignments are completed.

    Practice spelling tests are on Thursday and the "real" spelling test is on Friday.

    Each child has a small magic stone jar in the resource classroom. Magic stones are dropped into the child's individual jar for positive participation and behavior. At the end of each session we count the magic stones and children may choose a sticker for 5 magic stones or a small prize for every ten magic stones.

    Materials, supplies, texts, and such...
    We utilize a variety of learning materials including the Journeys language arts materials. Each day the children begin the session listening to and viewing a read aloud literature rich mentor text. We follow the text with a sustained period of writing in the writing binder. Each student has a word book that helps with spelling words for written language. Spelling words are practiced daily utilizing a variety of materials including wipe off boards, Playdoh, Wikki Sticks, chart paper, sand, flip books, and shaving cream!

    I am so excited that we now have a projectable interactive Smartboard in the resource room!! The Journey's language arts curriculum includes many many interactive Smartboard activities that reinforce the language arts curriculum.
     
    Great sites to visit are abcya, Hideout, and Starfall.
