ROOM 6 NEWS - CHANGES TO HOMEWORK

Welcome back from break!  I hope everyone had fun family time and got a little rest in as well.  

 

As we return to school life, I will be expecting a bit more from our students as they get ready to enter the second trimester.  In particular, students will be completing more homework moving forward.  In addition to the usual reading log and math fluency practice on reflex math, students will complete spelling packets with activities due on Friday.
