We are in Chapter 12 in grammar. We will be reviewing all the sentence patterns we ave learned so far.  Watch for homework coming home a couple nights a week. 

Singapore Math

We are beginning Unit 10 : Adding and Subtracting Money. Please look for math homework coming home!

The Unit 9 test came home in Thursday Folders. The kids did great! 

We are also working on mastering our multiplication facts. We will be building an ice cream sundae for each fact's set we have mastered. So far the 0's and 1's have been mastered! The students all have earned their "Sundae dish"! Once we get through 10's facts we will have an actual ice cream celebration! Keep practicing those X Facts at home! 

Please check your student's planner for homework and test assignments. 

Check out the new Math link on the website. http://aspenviewacademy.org/site/academics/curriculum/math

Please practice math facts nightly. It will help your student gain the confidence needed to grow as a mathematician. There is no form to fill out for this, please just try for 10 minutes a night. I know there are a lot of different games/apps out there to help with this. Please do whatever works best for your family.

Parents, please note that your child now has important log-in information for Singapore Math in Focus Online Resources stapled into the front of his/her planner (a bright pink paper).  You are welcome to access these tools anytime from home.  We think they will prove useful throughout the year.
