awesome job! We continue to build fluency,
sprinkling in skills like finding area, drawing
arrays, and identifying math properties. We
have one more Quick Quiz (check in)
before wrapping up Unit 1. Your child has
been working hard to be a Math leader!

Ask your child what their word sort categories are for the week some of their papers -Light blue papers are typically

I appreciate all of the positive communication I have been getting from parents. Thanks for helping your children have a
successful start to 3rd Grade! Were constantly learning and growing into independent learners :)
