WOW! I am now done with all reading and math testing and can start reading and math groups!!!

SO make sure that when they read at home each night you are there with them hearing them and helping them.

Math: We are learning how to compare and order numbers. You can practice this at home by: giving them random cards from a deck of cards and having them put in order EX: 8, 5, 3 They would put in order: 3, 5, 8 . We are also leaning how to use the symbols: <, >, = Give them two numbers and ask” which does the alligator want to eat?”
