Exercise your brain this Week:

Try practicing for the state test by clicking on the "State Test Practice" tab at the top of my website! We practiced this in class this week and I showed the kids what the test will look like!!

*Go to the "Websites for Home" at the top of this page and play one of the reading, scholastic magazine, grammar, math, or typing games!

*Type a google doc story and send it to Mrs. Milan to practice your writing and typing skills!


  • Each week your student should be studying their multiplication facts in order to know them automatically by the end of the year. We follow the "three second rule." If they don't know the product (answer) in three seconds or less, than they do not know them automatically yet!
  • Students can ask for a multiplication sheet from me at the beginning of the week to practice at home. You can also listen to the multiplication songs provided on my website or study flashcards!


  • Students should read for 20 minutes per night to see necessary improvement throughout the school year.
  • Book reports need to be turned in once your chapter book is completed in order to meet your quarterly chapter book goal!
