The Fantastic Frogs Reading Group is “jumping” into a fun-filled year of reading in Mrs. Kara Myers “pond”!  Everyday is packed full of sounds, words, and stories.  From The Barking Shark to The Cowboy Rides a Cow.  The “frogs” are enjoying sounding out hard words and answering comprehension questions.  After every 5 lessons, each “frog” visits the “lily pad” for a check-out.  Mrs. Myers, head “toad-cher”, is very excited to see just how far these “frogs” are going to “swim” through Signature 1 of the Reading Mastery program!  "Frogs" from left to right are Trenton Vossler, Josh Meyer, and Tyler Due.
