  • Fast Facts: Addition and Subtraction strategies


XTRA MATH

Check out XtraMath on your computer or tablet! The kids use it to practice their fast facts quickly and accurately. It's a fun way to do a little math each day!

Please see the note I sent home to access your student's account or contact me with questions!

*For responsibility if students do XtraMath I give them a stamp on their pyramid*

  • BRING A COAT, HAT, AND GLOVES! It's been very chilly outside!
  • When there is snow, please bring snow pants and boots (please label all your child's things)
  • Bring a water bottle to school
  • Empty your take home folder daily
  • If your child is going home different than normal, please send a note to myself and the office. I will always send your child to their normal pick up place unless I have a note.
