    I think my goals during the summer are definitely going to be reading.
    Another goal of mine is to try and work on my math. Even know I don’t really like math I want to do good in it.
    Remembering is my other goal. I need to remember how to solve problems and know how to get answer’s for next year! Hopefully I do because I usually forget most of the time.
    I need to improve in math the most and will be trying my hardest for next year. I want to finish a couple of chapter books during the summer.
    Next year I have to put all my focus into school and Recess and Lunch I can talk to my friends not during class. I think if I worked on that I could definitely do better in school. πŸ™‚

      Summer is a great time for catching up on all the books you don’t always have time to read during the school year. It’s fun to get into a book and read it cover to cover in a day or two.

      Quick Fix: Use an apostrophe to show possession or contraction – never for a plural noun: “so I can make lots of money”
