On Track Calendar
UPDATE: Now that we have the MindPlay curriculum and will be starting that soon, you will notice that we have trimmed down some of the ELA lessons as well to provide your child time to work in MindPlay each week. Please use this time wisely!
Thank you for working hard to make this a successful year!
Side note: If you especially enjoy any of those subjects, you can still complete the extra or skipped lessons. If you need help finding them in your OLS since they won't appear on your Plan, just reach out to your teacher.

What Can You Do to Help Your Child Grow?
Reading at least 20 minutes per day is a great way to increase reading fluency. Your child can work on building up their stamina by starting with just 5 minutes. You can also change up your reading space to make it fun and new! Some ideas are: reading outside, build a fort-then read in it, reading during a picnic, or read a book in bed. This website has more creative reading challenge ideas: https://www.ateachableteacher.com/free-reading-challenge/
As they read, help them practice comprehension skills like identifying the main parts of the story including details about characters, setting, beginning/middle/end, etc. They can also read a book and describe the main idea and details about the people, places, and thing in it.
Encourage them to write in fun ways, a letter to family member, creating their own story, making a journal entry, etc.
