  1. GLUE STICKS-10 per child please
  2. PAGE PROTECTORS- if each child could bring a 25 count box we would have enough for the year. Many children have brought a few in.
  3. PENCIL TOP ERASERS- I order these 250 or 300 at a time from oriental trading. A third grade class usually goes through 500 a year.

Math: This week will continue our first unit on place value and simple addition/subtraction strategies.
