Seeing Growth!

I have enjoyed walking by the Math Fact Master bulletin board in our north hall. Each day there seems to be another star added to show that another student has demonstrated mastery of math facts. What is really exciting is that the names on the board are from first to sixth grade! Parents can help their students by practicing at home. Flashcards are a wonderful way to practice!
