*Please check to be sure that your child is reading their AR books nightly. They should be working on both fiction and non-fiction books. Remember to ask your child what their goal is for this quarter.
*Please review homework with your child and help them make any corrections necessary. Your child should have their homework assignments written in their planner nightly. Homework is a great way to practice the skills that we are working on in the classroom. Please especially review math homework with your child on a nightly basis.
