Lyrics2Learn

We have started a new reading website to help your child with fluency and comprehension. It is called Lyrics2Learn and there is a link on the right hand side of my blog under reading. I have already set up their account. The username is their first name and their password is their last name. Please encourage your child to visit this website to read and practice their fluency.
