2nd Six Weeks Math Facts Challenge

A math facts test will be given to students on the following dates:

Friday, October 7th - Done!

Friday, October 14th - Done!

Friday, October 21st

Friday, October 28th

Students will track their progress using a LINE graph.

Teachers may reward growth in your classroom each week as you choose.

4th grade students must complete the test in under 5 minutes. 5th grade students must complete the test in under 4 minutes.

85% accuracy = 30 minute recess

90% accuracy = 30 minute recess AND a drink

95% accuracy = 30 minute recess AND a drink AND a snack

Teachers will have students complete a grid in addition to the facts test but we will use the facts tests results for the campus challenge.

AR: Game On!

Encourage students to read and meet their goals. Reading teachers have set a goal with each student for the second six weeks. Students who meet their goal will be invited to attend a game party on Friday, November 11th. Students will bring games and we will provide a snack and a drink for the students at the party.
