Books that cover social studies

Dear Family,

Our class is making books that cover social studies topics and help children build reading and writing skills. These books include predictable text that is easy to read. They cover key topics such as homes, neighborhoods, communities, jobs, transportation, and mapping.

Each student adds writing and illustrations to complete the books and personalize them. The children are proud of their work and eager to share it with you. We hope that you'll enjoy reading these books together. When reading the books, I encourage you to ask questions about the text or illustrations and provide positive feedback about your child's ideas, illustrations, handwriting, or overall presentation. You might also comment on your child's reading expression and fluency.

Thank you very much for your participation. Your encouragement will mean a great deal to your child.
