Our Lexia Challenges continue! We know Covid has set our students back, but they are making progress and we couldn’t be more proud. We need them to read each night and keep working on those Lexia units. Doing those two things will help them grow in their reading comprehension and fluency. Students are spending the next several weeks working on grammar skills such as homophones, contractions, action verbs and commas in a series. In writing, our students are learning to write letters and summarize using words like “first, next, then, and finally.” We have MAPS testing, PALs and DRA testing in the spring. Your child’s teacher will be comparing those scores to the fall assessments in order to evaluate your child’s growth this year.
