Reflection: Parent Communication Dark Day in the Deep Sea: Day Three of Five Look Out for a Squall! - Section 6: At Home Practice


I love to send home our informational texts and literature that we're studying at school.  With the new Common Core Standards, I feel the practice with the texts at home is more meaningful.  We now include questions pertaining to the standards addressed that particular week, as well as the essential question of the unit.  I feel this creates a great home and school relationship.
