Reading: read nightly,  see Reading for story titles. Practice  vocabulary word lists. Students may bring home their reading books daily. The more they read the stories, the more they build fluency and retain new vocabulary words. 

Remember, the stories are getting a little harder as the year progresses.  Practicing reading at home nightly will help improve reading fluency as well as increase vocabulary word retention.
