Each student entering fourth grade is asked to
practice your math skills by working in either your math packet or a math

one at any bookstore.) Bring the packet or book with you on the first day
of school, and I will give you credit for your summer work! If you work online, bring in some of the
certificates/awards you earned. Also, keep practicing your math facts and times
