I am linking up with Kacey at Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday. Happy, Happy Friday! Here are some of my favorite moments of the week. A teacher at school shared this site of Math Tips for Parents for all grade levels, and I wanted to pass it on! These are great to send home so parents know what types of activities you are working on in the classroom.
