Dear Scholars,
Welcome to The Honors Academy of Literature.  I am so excited to meet you!  We will have an exciting year learning and working together.  This year you will learn to read, write, spell, and figure out math story problems!  You will even lose some teeth!  You will make some great friends as we build a family environment in the classroom.  You will discuss, work in teams or partners, use math materials to help you solve math problems, and write your own stories!
  We have so much to do together!  I look forward to meeting you!  
Ms. Chris
