Math

ENVISIONS MATH
This week we will begin Topic 15 on Time. Time is TRICKY as we are telling time by five minutes as well as the quarter to and quarter after terms. It would be VERY helpful to practice telling time at home.
** Since we are extending this difficult topic, some homework this week will be Time worksheets and not in the math homework book.
Thanks so much for your support! For some fun practice click on the link for Topic 15 time practice websites: http://www.crsd.org/Page/31946
