Long time, no talk, but still learning!
I haven't posted new info in quite some time. I'm sure that you are aware that your child is now to read a passage every evening. The repetitious reading of an on-level passage will allow your child to improve their fluency. Fluency is the process of reading words and sentences at a pace that is pleasant to the reader and the listener. Reading fluently allows for comprehension of what is being read.
I often use the analogy of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears." Similar to the items in the story, reading fluently means that a person reads:
"Not too fast, not too slow, just right."
Your children use this phrase to explain appropriate reading skills to myself and their peers.
Please stay tuned to your child's homework assignments, as they will be modified in the coming weeks to adjust for the passage. Some activities will be omitted or modified. I thank you for being flexible and supportive in regards to your child's learning.
