IF you are looking for something to do, I'd suggest "brushing up" on your summer reading plots so that you will be able to add to our discussions next week. Also, I have discovered that some students would benefit from added practice with good ole' addition and subtraction. Speed and accuracy!

  • Any more school supplies needed??????
  • Parent homework is due tomorrow. ("About My Child" worksheet)
  • Students are asked to improve their speed and accuracy of addition facts by taking 100-problem timed "test" TWO more times. Hopefully, someone at home can time them (up to 5 mins.) and tell them how many problems are incorrect/missing. We are looking for improvement from the baseline we took in class today. *The expectation at this level is 90-100% in 4 minutes or less.
