I have had a blast teaching your child this year and wish him/her the best of luck in second grade! There will be no homework for the summer, however, I encourage all students to continue practicing their math skills on IXL, as well as read daily and even keep a summer journal as a way to practice their writing. Have a great summer and see you in August!
