We just completed our first grading period. I'm very happy with all of the gains the students are making! Take every opportunity to practice your math and reading skills. Math practice can be done when you are making purchases at the store. You can review basic addition, subtraction and multiplication facts in the car when your riding from one place to another.
Reading can be done just for enjoyment! Read the newspaper, comics, and magazines. You can even read a recipe and make something tasty!
