Math

ENVISIONS MATH
This week we will finish Topic 17, numbers and patterns to 1000. Our test review day will be Thursday, and our test is scheduled on Friday. To finish out the year, the remainder of topics are 3 digit addition/subtraction, multiplication, and division. It's so important to review basic addition and subtraction facts, especially as we approach these last few topics.

Greg Tang's Spring Math Challenge

Are you looking for a math activity that will allow your child to continue learning and have fun this spring? Then check out Greg Tang’s Spring Math Challenge! Go to: http://gregtangmath.com/spring

Once there, locate and print your child’s grade level game board. Students who complete the challenge can earn a certificate and a chance to win a personalized signed copy of one of Greg Tang’s books.

It is fine for students to get help from an adult if they need it. Students can also move to harder or easier levels of the games to make them more or less challenging.

Mark off each square on the game board after your child completes each activity. Please sign his or her sheet and send it back to school by May 9th. In addition, write on the game board paper “Attention: Mrs. Prozzillo” so that your child can receive a certificate of participation and be entered into the contest to win a signed copy of a book written by Greg Tang.

Please check the Rolling Hills Home & School website for updates at http://www.rhhsa.org


Reminders

*Snacks - Please remind your child about bringing in their snack every day and that we are a peanut free classroom, therefore snacks should not contain peanuts or peanut butter. Thank you for keeping our classroom safe!


* Classroom website - due to the district changing over to a new website program, there will be pages that are outdated or not applicable at this time. In order for this change to be implemented, all pages needed to be online.
