Wow!  It is hard to believe that after a nice long weekend we only have this week and we will be off track for two weeks.
I know it is tempting to just put everything aside until we are back in school, but I would encourage you to keep on reading even while you are on break.  IT REALLY WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!  This is especially important as we prepare for our testing in preparation for our student lead conferences.  This is what helps the students make growth in the reading area.  Any kind of writing especially sentences and stories are also a big help in getting the students where they need to be by the end of the year.  I would encourage you to practice basic math facts as well as working on word problems (story problems) with your child.  We read a problem. We draw the problem to show proof of our answer and then we write an equation that matches the words and the picture.  ( I usually make them up from something that is happening right then)

I just wanted to post a quick hello and give a quick yell out for continuing your good routines while off track.  Practice makes life so much easier!!!

Hope that you all have a great week :D
