      • Reading

        Our whole group reading instruction each week will focus on a story from our reading books.  With this story, we work on spelling words, vocabulary, language skills and writing.  You will find the week's story title at the top of your child's word list that comes home on Mondays.

        This year we will also be using ideas from The Daily Five and CAFE for small group and one-on-one reading instruction.  Click on the website below for more information!

        Scholastic Reading Counts is a web-based quiz program that we will be using to increase comprehension.  Books from our classroom and the elementary library are labeled based on a points system.  Each quarter, the children will be given a goal of a certain amount of reading counts points to earn.  They can earn these points by reading books and passing quizzes on the school computers.  See the website below for a list of books and their point values.

      • Math

        In addition to regular homework each night, please encourage your son/daughter to take a few minutes to practice basic addition and subtraction facts.

        The websites below have fun math games to help you practice!
