Dec. 21

A happy and blessed Christmas!
For the holidays, I did not make a formal assignment.  However, this is a good time to continue reading at least 20 minutes a day and studying and reviewing Math facts until they are mastered.  Students should be doing Mathletics activities and games as well as live Math.  I trust that all will use this time profitably.
