Scholastic Book Orders

Scholastic book orders are a wonderful way to help build your child's excitement with reading! If you would like to place an order you may send in a hard copy or order online at the following link: http://www.crsd.org/Page/16684

Orders are due by Friday 1/22. Thank you.



This week we will finish up Topic 9, subtracting two digit numbers and our test will be on Friday. Tricky, tricky as we subtract numbers with regrouping. Ask your child to "rap" their regrouping song for you - it really helps!!

Congratulations to Falone, our First in Math player of the week! This is a wonderful activity to help strengthen your child's math skills on different levels and provide enrichment. www.firstinmath.com
