I feel like I may share in your same thoughts about how fast first quarter just flew by! I need to not think about there being just 3 quarters remaining in the year! There is so much left to do together and there is still so much more to learn about your children.
This first quarter has been a wonderful one getting to know each of them. I don't think I've ever had a class that was as eager to learn as this year's. They respond so well to RTI, and always look forward to working with one another and to try new things. Although they may moan and groan, it is so evident that they really like being challenged in Math. Their love for learning is inspiring as well as rewarding to see, and it makes my job a little easier.
That being said, I look forward to seeing their enthusiasm when we return on Monday, October 15th! Enjoy this time with your children as they have worked very hard this quarter! Have a safe and enjoyable Fall Break!
PS - You are welcome to have your children work on their iReady Reading and Math lessons during the break to help them continue to retain skills and grasp concepts.
