Wow!  The weeks seem to be going by way too quickly!

You can view your child's reading test on line.  You need to check into Think Central - click on "My Scores" - you can see how they did if you click on the test.  It will show you what answer they chose and the correct answer.  We are learning how to follow the directions at this time. :)
