Math homework is due on Thursday morning.

Math:

Math Packet: Students will receive a weekly math packet in their Friday folder. The packet needs to be completed and returned to school in the Friday folder. 
Challenge pages are also available for students seeking math enrichment. 

Fact mastery is critical for success in many other mathematical areas. As a regular part of your homework, please be sure your child works to memorize these facts.

Students should accurately answer 50 facts in 3 minutes and 20 seconds for math fact mastery.

Addition Fact Mastery: We will start the school year with a review of addition facts. We will spend 4 weeks reviewing addition facts, August 25-September 15th. Each Friday, students will take a 50 fact addition test. They will have 3 minutes and 20 seconds to complete the test. That's 4 seconds per fact. Students must score at least 48 out of 50 facts to pass and need to pass 3 times to demonstrate mastery. You may download practice pages on the math links page or below.
