Summer Reading List 

Please continue to practice your sight words during the summer.

Also, practice reading the reading practice books that we have sent home during the school year.  Have the students read at least 1 book with you every day.  Reading for 20 minutes EVERY DAY is the most important thing you can do with your child!  Here are some suggested books to read.
