Greetings! Soon you will be receiving a letter in the mail from me. I don't know what it will say yet, but it will tell you that I have been having a great summer. In addition to spending time with my family and friends, I have done a lot of work getting ready for the year, especially for Readers Workshop and Science! I have uploaded an article with questions in the "Important paperwork" section below. You can print it or read it on line, but you should print and answer the questions...
See you soon! If you miss me, remember you can email me:

Khan Academy: Stay current with your skills, but for refreshers or to learn new concepts, check out Khan Academy. Video lessons help students learn the information.
www.mathisfun.com is a great website for kids to access for skills practice and games.
Playing games is great for all families: Some ideas that teach math skills are Chess, Checkers, Uno,Yahtzee, Farkle, Backgammon or Cribbage or try board games that teach decision making skills like Stratego, or Risk. Crossword puzzles, word searches and games like Scrabble or Boggle are helpful with spelling skills, Playing any games teach many skills and provide valuable opportunities for families to enjoy each other's company. HAVE FUN!!
