We've been working hard all week on nonfiction texts. We've worked on comprehension, determining main idea, explaining relationships, and comparing and contrasting. We've used the Bible, articles, and informational story books.


Please continue to have your children read every night- if only for 20 minutes! The more they read, the better their comprehension will be!
