We read Nate the Snake is Late and On My Way to School this week. We also read other stories where we practiced the skills of long a and contractions. Our grammar skill was verbs. Next week we will work on long i, plurals, and present tense verbs.


Your child can work on the Raz-Kids website at anytime for more practice on reading comprehension. If you think your child's level is too easy let me know and I can increase the difficulty. The teacher username is: smitchellav
