Week of September 6th

I hope everyone had a great Labor Day Weekend!
We are continuing with Investigation 1 in our book Moving Straight Ahead this week. I had to make an adjustment to the homework assignments because I was gone last Friday. I apologize if your child struggled with problem 6 on page 14, we covered that material today and the assignment will now be due on Thursday. We will also have an Order of Operations Worksheet on Thursday which will be due Monday. Two homework assignments this week due to the short week.
This Friday will be our first Bellwork Quiz and the Investigation 1 Quiz. Please remind your child to keep their notebooks organized, they can use them for the Investigation 1 Quiz!
Thank you,
Mrs. Anderson
