Dear Parents,

I hope you had a nice Spring Break! This week we will be studying dinosaurs. We will also make dinosaur fossils. This is the last nine weeks; however, we will be looking for mastery. It is very important for your child to work on comprehension, math facts, and sight words. Don’t forget to use IXL Math, Classworks, and reading eggs to help your child move forward.

Mrs. Marshall
