February 2016

February is flying by!

We started learning about fractions at the beginning of the year and now it is time to show what we know. There is a Fractions Test this Friday. Here are some resources below to practice at home.

The Online Fraction Study Guide is in Aleks. Students receive immediate feedback and can retake this practice test as many times as needed.

Division Challenge

Students have an opportunity to earn rewards for memorizing the division facts 1-12. They have until March 3rd to demonstrate knowledge of the division fact families. If your student would like a set of division flashcards to practice at home, I have them available. Division Quick Tables in Aleks is homework 3 nights a week.

Valentine's Day Party

This Friday, Feb. 12th we will have a Valentine's Day Party. Students can bring in boxes and Valentine's for all classmates. I will have a brown bag provided for students who do not make a box.

Technology

Stay connected with Canvas Calendar and ask your student how they use Google Keep to stay organized during the week.
