As you help your child practice at home for the GA Milestones, please keep the following reading and math strategies in mind:
- Read the questions first!
- Go back to the passage. (Good readers re-read!)
- Underline (highlight) the answers in the passage.
- Use the process of elimination and rule out answers that don’t make sense.
- Highlight key math words that let you know what operation to use. (in all, altogether, find the difference, each, equal sharing, sum, product, how many more, how many fewer, quotient, etc.)
- Use scratch paper to work out the math problems! Don’t guess!

ART ROOM HIGHLIGHT
Like the Ancient Greeks, who created large pots to carry olive oil, our little artists at Reese Road will be able to create our own pottery soon! We were granted money for a ceramic kiln and pottery supplies through FLINT ENERGIES FOUNDATION, INC.. They have a program called “Operation Round Up” their motto is “Small change that changes lives”. Please Round up on your electric bill, it will not cost more than .99 a month! All that extra change goes to many worthwhile causes within our community.
Thank you Flint Energies!
