Thinking About Reading: One of the strategies we use for understanding what we read is Making a Picture. Every page or so when reading, stop and try to form a picture of what is happening in the story. As you read, try to change the picture with what happens in the story. You might also draw different pictures of things that happen in the story to help you practice.

Wednesday, February 14, is St. Valentine’s Day. Your student is welcome to bring a box/envelope/container for Valentine cards. Decoration is encouraged! Attached is a class list for Valentines. Alternatively, there are a total of 27 students in our class.
