Parent Letter The purpose of this letter is to by tommyadams

Dear Parents/Guardians:

This is your child's poetry folder. This folder is a vital part of our reading
program in that it contains the poems, songs, and rhymes we have been
learning in class. Reading poetry is one way to promote fluency and word
recognition. Each week the children will add a new passage to their folder.
By the end of the year your child will be able to successfully read this
wonderful collection.

Your child will take this folder home once a week for reading pleasure and
practice. It would be helpful if a family member could read the passage
first, if needed. That way your child can hear the flow of the language, and
will be better able to predict unknown words. I will also assign a homework
activity for them to complete using that week's poem. After you and your
child have enjoyed the folder, and completed the assignment at home, return
it to school the next morning. Please be sure that the folder is returned in
good condition, and it always needs to be brought to school in a backpack.

I look forward to working with you on this project. Due to our work
together, your child will continue to develop as a lifelong reader. If you have
any questions about this, please feel free to contact me at 727-547-7668.


Miss K. Luczaj
