Fluency Homework


You may notice this week that your child's fluency homework has become a litter harder. This means that your child has gained reading skills and moved up a few levels. Woohoo! This is something to celebrate! Although this week may be more of a struggle, please continue to help and encourage your child to complete it and work through those tricky words. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me, otherwise we will talk more about this at conferences. Thank you and have a great week!
