  • YOU are an important part of our reading curriculum.  Have your child read to you 10-15 minutes each night.  Don't forget to fill out the reading log and return to school when it is complete.   Then begin a new reading log, let's see how many stickers your child can earn from reading at night :)  Sit back, enjoy listening to your child and watch them develop into a reader.

    Reading Logs



  • Math facts are very important to know!  Math facts are important in first grade, in second grade and throughout life.  Addition and subtraction flash cards are a great strategy for practicing.
