We are off and running and already into this second full week of October!
Thank you so much for getting your conference information back so quickly. I am looking forward to sharing with you the growth that I have seen in your kiddos. They work so hard! You will receive your child’s 1st Nine Week Report Card at your conference.
For next few weeks in math, we will be learning a lot of different addition and subtraction strategies to help your child with their math fact knowledge and fluency. This is such an important building block skill for the grades ahead. I know they will do great at learning their facts.
Thanks for all you do at home! All that practice really helps at school! Trust me!
Have a fantastic week!
