Her school has sent home a chart that is much easier to track her progress than previous years. This one just has the minutes read each day instead of having to keep track of the books and then have her draw a picture of what happened in each book. Although I will miss her drawings of Pigeon and other fun characters. I think they may actually get more participation in the program due to this change. We are also doing the reading challenge for our bank (TD Bank) The kids read 10 books and get $10 deposited into their savings accounts. Love that. And then Barnes and Noble has their reading program. Eight books gets Kira a free book! I think it rocks that these businesses are as into keeping the reading going as I am.
I also got her a set of multiplication flash cards so we can work on her speed with her times tables or is that number facts?? Not used to this new math concept yet but I do know that she needs to know these facts at a much quicker pace than she already does. It will help her when she has the challenge of division this coming school year. So we will be flashing her once she is back home! LOL
Happy reading everyone!!
