Sign & Return Papers

Week 7 Sign & Return papers will go home this Wednesday.

If your child is bringing home Ws on their papers, please do not worry too much at this point. Talk to your child if you see notes written on their papers about skipping questions or other concerns. All tests are read aloud and I do repeat each question multiple times at this point in the school year. Students are told to raise their hand and ask for help rather than skip a question. They should not turn in their paper until they have checked all answers.

This Week's Math Lessons

This week we will start Chapter 6: Subtraction Strategies and will continue on with Excel lessons as usual. Students will learn how to count back to subtract and how to use a number line to subtract. Students will also learn more about fact families and other subtraction strategies.
