True Blue Practice

It is almost time for your child to bring home their very first "True Blue" practice activities. Starting on the 29th of January, your child will bring home a True Blue Practice sheet each Friday. This practice will include suggested activities for handwriting and sight word practice as well as reading. We will look over the practice and assess progress with your child each week on Fridays. We look forward to partnering with you!
