Each day, your child will work with math, writing, and reading. Each day we will discuss items on our CAFÉ board. Café stands for: Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency, and Expand Vocabulary. Together we will work on strategies from those ideas. Each week, I will post a newsletter on my classroom site: http://kinderpond.blogspot.com/ of the strategies we worked on during the week. Please let me know if you do not have access to the Internet and I will make you a copy of the newsletter and send it home with your child.
We will be working in small groups to give the students the most individual instruction to meet their individual needs.
We added one strategy to our CAFE menu:
Check for Understanding is the very first one we talked about.
