A little bit more …
• Reading and Spelling: Thank you for all of your cooperation. Please continue to read with your child as well as practice their spelling words with them as often as possible. 
• Reading Tips: When you read with your child, I encourage you to remind them to slow down, check for understanding and punctuation and ask them check in questions as they go. 
• Home Reading: Once your child reaches 100 books, I will send home more reading sheets so they can keep going! 
• Calling All Kleenex: We could still use a few more boxes of Kleenex to help us through these next couple months! Thanks to those who have already sent some!!! Our noses appreciate it!
If you have any questions, never hesitate to contact me. Feel free to join our Remind as well. neshica.peter@rbe.sk.ca , remind.com/join/c8g3ae
