    Things to Know!
    • Five-Minute Multiplication Fact Sheets will be done throughout the year. Your student should bring this home for you to see how many facts they can complete in five minutes. Math fact sheets count towards their Mathematics grade for fact fluency.  For the second, third and fourth quarter, facts will cycle: multiplication for two weeks and then division for one week (for students who have been achieving +95 facts in multiplication). 

    • Tempting Tens will be part of the student's grades starting in the second quarter (Please see the handouts page that outlines how these work and also has all of them posted).


    • Homework* is corrected daily by me and should be coming home for you to see how your child did. If you need to help your child to an extent where you feel he/she is struggling please forward a note to me or email me so I can allot time to work with him/her. Otherwise, based on their homework I will think that they will have mastered concepts outside the need of reteaching.
    *Students can refer to their book online.  Therefore there is never a need to bring an actual book home.  If you would like one to come home, please request one through the front office.
