Math: Lesson 3-10, Homework: All
Check to see if your child has completed their homework assignment in math today.  
Social Studies: Next week Wednesday students will be taking a 13 colonies quiz where they need to know the names and locations of all 13 colonies.  They also need to know where the boundary is between the New England Colonies and Middle Colonies, and the boundary between the Middle Colonies and Southern Colonies.   The website below is a great study tool to help students learn the locations of each one.  Happy studying!!
Study the 13 Colonies

Thank You!

Dear Parents,

I am flabbergasted that we only have one more school day until summer vacation. I want to thank each of you for sharing your children with me this school year. I feel so blessed to have been a part of your children’s  lives.

Also, thank you so much for the outpouring of volunteerism and donations for our class this year.  I truly could not have had all the activities and have them run so smoothly if I hadn’t had such great support.  

Have a safe, healthy, and happy summer!  I will miss you! agcthankyou8
