What we are learning about:
Your child should be bringing home a guided reading book each night. Please make sure they read this book to you and work on any homework I may have given them during their group.
We will also be working on doubles facts. Your child will be getting a set of flashcards tomorrow that they will need to study each night. Throughout the year your child will receive many different sets of flashcards. We are working on developing fundamental math skills that will help them become the best mathematicians they can be. Please make sure to talk to them about the importance of keeping up with their flashcards and continuing to review them all year.
