Carefully trim the extra laminated material from around the flower or leaf and glue it inside the frame.
Set aside your project to be continued tomorrow.
- Literature – 15 minutes
Free read for 15 minutes this afternoon or evening.
As always, reading with your child in the evenings is a great way to grow their mental word bank and fluency, and they may want to show their Math Card Deck to a parent or sibling after dinner!

See you tomorrow for School Day #103, our last day of school!
