     We have worked so hard the first half of this year!  I just completed the mid-year testing and all my students are showing progress in both math and reading.  :)

It is important that your child read about 15 minutes on a daily basis.  Don't be afraid to ask your child questions about what he/she is reading.  We are working hard on comprehension skills and discussion about content is a great way to show interest and promote attention to what is being read. 

Please continue to practice basic addition and subtraction facts with your child.  This makes more difficult computation concepts so much easier (regrouping in addition and subtraction).  Counting change in amounts up to $2.00 and time-telling practice with analog clocks is also very beneficial for your child.  We are currently studying measurement:  volume / capacity, weight, length, and temperature are all concepts we use on a daily basis.  On your next visit to the grocery store, take some time to show how these measurement tools are useful. 

Please continue to feel free to e-mail me, send me a note, or call (248-0141) if you have any questions or concerns.  I have a classroom full of wonderful boys and girls and I want them to be successful.  Working together makes such a difference!
