**Math Expressions!**

**Expressions and Equations!!!***We are so excited to be diving into some pre-algebra concepts!! This unit is very exciting for some students, but adding variables to our equations (letters!!) can be intimidating as well. The more you can support you can provide at home the better! Make sure your child is watching*

Look for a Family Letter to come home in Thursday Folders at the beginning of each unit.
