Can you believe it's already FEBRUARY!!?
February is jammed packed with all sorts of themes! Groundhog's Day, Valentine's Day, President's Day, and American Symbols.
Social Studies: President's Day Unit Project
Of course, they just add Donald Trump's name at the end....
We will be having timed math facts test each Friday for the rest of the year, except on Friday's during short weeks and/or ITBS testing week. The test of the week is provided in the homework pack and should be used as a practice test during the week. The goal is to complete at least 24 of the 25 math facts in 2 minutes. All students will have the opportunity to retest on math fact test if they wish to get their name on the Mastery board. If your child has not made a Mastery yet, they will. I know they can.
