We will spend this week on geometric shapes, both 2 and 3 dimensional. We will continue to do timed tests to build automaticity. Time and money are always something that we work on.

Congratulations to Kayden. He earned his AR shirt this week. Kids seem to be reading all the time. What a difference it has made for the fluency of those who do this. It is so exciting to watch the light bulb go off. Watching children become fluent readers is the highlight of my job!!!

Have a great week!!
