Trick Words of the Week


Thank you for your support with reading at home with your kiddo each night!  PLEASE make sure this book comes back each day in yoru kiddo’s SHARK folder.  We will work on reading and fluency one day and then comprehension the next and our group cannot run without the books :)

When your kiddo is done reading with you or to you:

Have them do a 5 finger retell!  It’s not just if your kiddo can read, it’s if they comprehend what they have read that will help then progress in their reading!  Below is a visual to help with these critical reading comprehension conversations at home!
