If your child is at reading level D or above, he or she may be ready to work on long vowel spellings.
Begin to introduce long vowel spellings to students at reading level D or higher. Students below level D should continue to review short vowels, but may also benefit from an introduction to long vowel sounds.
Is your child interested in a particular nonfiction topic, like sea animals? Extend learning by tying art into your studies. Have your child create a detailed drawing or painting of an animal they have studied.
As students begin to tackle nonfiction writing, provide them with levelled books on the subject they are learning, and ask them to include facts they gather in their writing. Tie in a fun art project with their writing to display at the end of the year.
