Learning about alphabetical order
From next week I ma hoping to be able to send home a second reading book with your child so if your child comes home with a book that looks different from what their usual book looks like this will be their extra book. I am going to let your child choose their own book from a collection of books which match your child's reading level. This book will be unfamiliar to your child. Please will you write the name of the book that they bring home in their reading record book and let me know how they get on with it.
