Please be sure to check your child's planner each night for math homework. As part of your child's homework, they will also need to be studying their multiplication facts Monday-Thursday for 5 minutes. They will receive a fact calendar on Monday that will need to be signed off each day that they study. This calendar will then be turned in on Friday for a grade. Once your child passes 2's, they will then begin to start studying to take their 3's test.
For better understanding of our math program, Singapore Math in Focus sets the mastery level at 80% for all assessments. On the assessments, students will see what the curriculum calls “novel questions.” These questions take the concepts that the students have learned in class and presents them in a new and unique way. This is to encourage higher-order thinking and problem solving skills. If a student scores an 80% on an assessment, they have fully mastered the unit and have met the expectations.
Please check Mrs. Winter's website to see what your child is studying in history.
We have begun our volcano unit. This week students will begin to research their specific volcano. Each student will be assigned a different question to research about their volcano.
