This is a great way for your child to practice their math facts.


Students will continue to work on writing grade level papers.  We will review the 4 paragraph structure this week and start a new prompt about nutrition and the food groups.  We will also be peer editing in class this week.  I feel the more input they have as a class the more they learn from each other.
