Gr. 3- Best Practices and Great Leaps

Our focus is on both fluency and comprehension, with an emphasis on
word work,  using a book called Highnoon Level 1. This program addresses 
phonics and comprehension. We are working on triple consonant clusters now 
such as spl, scr, spr, str, and squ.
  
We use  The Great Leaps fluency program.  This involves one  minute
readings of stories.  We began with Grade 2 stories, and are mostly using 
Grade 3 stories now. Your child may bring home a page to
practice at home.  The stories allow for 2 errors in each passage. 

Every Friday your child is progress monitored.  
Please encourage independent reading at home to help with comprehension and
fluency.
