Take home folders are stuffed today. Please be sure to look in their folders tonight. Students are coming home with their first homework packet; it is titled The Fox and Kit. The front page has their spelling words- please practice these nightly. Then there are two Every Day Math Home Links. The directions are at the top. The homework packet is due back on Friday. You may keep the cover page for your reference, but both Home Links should be turned in Friday (even if they finish early, please turn it in on Friday).
Students are also bringing home October's Scholastic Book Club. I am sending this one home now so that if you would like books, they will be in before the end of the month. There are SO many good books this month! Book orders will be due 10/11/17. The BEST way to order is online using our unique code: GZV3K.
You will also find information on how to use ST Math at home! Please read this over and if possible, let students enjoy ST Math at home, too!
