READING:  

READ, READ, & READ!  Students are to read each night!  The more you read the better reader you become. Did you know reading daily helps build fluency and comprehension?  Helpful tips:  If you don't know what a word is try sounding it out; find a chunk of the word that you can read, or use the blends we are learning.  You can also use the story pictures to help you.  It's always fun to read with a parent or a friend!

SOCIAL STUDIES:  

We will compare similarities and differences among families in different communities & classify regions according to physical criteria.
