Literacy bags can make a real difference. Our children need lots of opportunities to practice reading high frequency words in context. How do you provide addition practice with this? You can have your students work with a parent volunteer, work with a partner, or read to you. However, I still recommend that you send these little readers home so parents can celebrate their child's accomplishments and provide more practice for these young readers! Students are so proud of their new skills and it helps build their confidence.
Convince them and they will believe!

I have been teaching all of my adult life and still love doing this. I have taught kindergarten for 25 years and also have a credential in Special Education. I am a trainer for my district and love working with kindergarten teachers and young children. I am so lucky to have such a rewarding job where I get hugs from 5 year olds all day!
