Students should be reading at least 30 minutes each night. We will be getting Reading Calendars for October next week.
Students who have not memorized multiplication and division (and addition and subtraction) facts should be practicing those each night. There are many websites, games, and activities to help your child learn. I will be sharing more about these ideas soon. If you use flash cards, short periods (3-10 minutes) of focused practice is more effective than long periods of time.
