As a class (and a school) we strive to always be safe, respectful, and responsible. 

Please make sure that your student is fluent with their multiplication and division facts. It will make our math work much easier this year. Flashcards are a great way to practice.

Homework:

Your student will a weekly homework packet due at the end of the week. Students should also be practicing their math facts.





Helpful ideas for homework:

  1. Have a quiet spot for homework completion. Distractions can frustrate students and hinder completion.
  2. Have your student read the directions out loud to you to make sure they understand what they should be doing.
  3. Encourage your student to try a few problems before they ask for help.
