Mrs. Lee's Math Class Newsletter

Week of September 19th

What's Happening?

Be sure to encourage your child to begin working on his/her multiplication facts. Visit our eClass page and find the Symbaloo. There is a link for fact practice. We will start practicing timed fact tests on Monday.

Due to testing in other grade levels and a change in our specials time, we will be moving our math time to the end of the day (2:00-3:10) on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

What are we learning?

Addition and subtraction - unit test on Wednesday

Solving real-world problems

Multiplication - models and facts

Parsons Retake Policy

All students will be given an opportunity to retake most summative assessments – regardless of their grade – however, students need to know that the assessment may be in a different format. This does not include cold reading tests and full length genre writing assessments scored with a rubric. The two grades (original and new retake grade) will be averaged together and placed in the grade book. Parents will be notified by the teacher when the opportunity to retake a summative assessment is available. Teachers may give the same test or teachers may create an alternate assessment. Retakes may not be requested after the original and retake assessments have been sent home. Retake opportunities will be given at school during normal school hours.
