Hi to All My Readers,
Thanks for all your mail. This question seems very 
important, "How many children in your class can read?"  
There are different levels of reading:  readiness, emergent,
and fluent.  I have 0 at readiness, 3 at emergent, and 15 at
fluent.

Have An A+ Day,
Mrs. Alphabet

Butterflies are beautiful specimens of nature who represent spring, 
beauty, and freedom.  Children are attracted to these colorful 
insects who flutter around and fill the air with movement.  I have
