Dear Families,

It’s hard to believe that this school year is almost over. It has been a joy to watch our students grow and learn over the past year. Listed below are some activities to keep those little minds busy and learning over the summer:  -After listening to a story, have your child retell the story (characters, setting, beginning, middle, ending). Write a book review.

**Your child brought home their Math workbook—there are many exercises left to complete.

**Be sure to continue to practice addition and subtraction flashcards as well as multiplication if your child mastered addition and subtraction.

**Join the Cobb County Summer Reading Program at the Public Library. READ, READ, READ!!!!!!!!!!! This year’s program is Biblionasium.
