Reading: This week we are reading the story "Mailing May" in our Scott Foresman reading book. WE WILL BE TAKING OUR ALPHA TEST TUESDAY – FRIDAY. THIS IS TO PRACTICE FOR OUR STATE TEST IN APRIL.
Our fluency story this week is 'Thomas Jefferson'. We will read the story for one minute and count the words that were read aloud.

We start with a cold read on Monday and by Friday we should have made good progress reading more and more words each day.
