What YOU Think the Kids Need to Know


The students are doing a fantastic job completing their weekly homework. Each day the students are assigned 30 math problems in class. As the math concepts get more difficult the students might be bringing home more homework. Please assist your child with any questions they might have on their daily work.

Here are the lessons we will cover this week:

Monday - Lesson 80: Division with Zeros

Tuesday - Lesson 81: Angle Measures

Wednesday - Lesson 82: Tessellations

Also, please encourage a few minutes of daily math fact practice! IXL.com is a fantastic website to sharpen those skills!
