Homework will start coming home on October 19th. For those of you that would like to get started now, you can begin by reading 10 minutes a night. After you are done reading have your child explain their favorite part, retell the story, etc.

You can also have your child use the tic tac toe menu to help them learn their weekly words. Click HERE to access the menu.
