Reading & Writing
Please make sure your child is reading for 20+ minutes each day. Here are a few sites that have books your child can read as well as books that can be read to them. As always, any library book or book from home would be a great choice as well. After reading a book, have your child write 4 sentences about their story. Remember to use capitals, punctuation, spacing, and best handwriting.
