Phonics Fun

Phonics Focus:  Qq, Yy


Parents...How can you help? Encourage your child to...

1. Identify upper and lowercase Qq and Yy.

(Point out letters in a magazine...point out letters on road signs...point out letters in books)


2. Write upper and lowercase Qq and Yy.

(Begin writing at the top of the letter...don't rush - take your time)


3. Talk about it.

(What words start with the /kw/ and /y/ sound?)

Sight Words

This week's focus: where, come

Learning sight words will help your child to read more fluently and, in return, aid in reading

comprehension because he/she will be spending less time decoding each word.
