I enjoyed getting to know you at conferences. Your help and support is so important in your child's education. Here are some of the main goals that were set.
1. Organize binder and desk.
2. Read 30 minutes every night.
3. Fill out homework log every day and have a parent sign.
4. Improve comprehension strategies by using strategies on the back of homework log or other strategies we have learned in class.
Also, I told the students they will get a treat if they play some of the math games on the blog by Monday. There is the Ia.usu on the Math Tab and some to the right of this home page. (If they have ***** that means a student has recommended the game.) Which game is your favorite?Let me know on Monday.

What is the summer slide? Summer slide refers to the loss of reading skills that results when students slip out of the practice of reading over the summer (see "Three Ways to Prevent Summer Slide"). It is suggested that students who read at least six books will not regress over summer vacation. So, how do we prevent the summer slide? We engage them in summer reading programs.
