No.  However, if you are looking for suggested activities Mr. Needleman recommends reading a book and completing 30 minutes of Dreambox a day.  Students might also explore any of the web sites available through…amplify reading, Renaissance Learning, etc.  The district also offers additional activities if you are looking for them.
