STAAR Math Review!!!

The students and I have been focusing on reviewing our math skills and getting ready for STAAR! The students have been working so hard and I am proud of the progress that I have seen this year. One of the things we have been doing to get students excited about STAAR review, is daily rewards. As you may have heard from your student, their class participates in a drawing every day. This drawing decides what their class' reward will be for the following day. Below are some pictures from our "Crazy Hat Day" and "Technology Lunch Day."

HAVE YOU ASKED YOUR CHILD...WHERE IS YOUR ROAD TRIP BUS?!?!?!

Important Note about Tutoring & Math Homework

This will be the last week for both Math & ELAR tutoring (April 14-18). We will continue to work with students in small groups at teacher table throughout the school day. Please let us know if you have any questions!


Also, your child's only Math homework from now on will be 30 minutes of Think Through Math per week. Doing more than 30 minutes is strongly encouraged, but 30 minutes is the minimum!


Mrs. Ticehurst & Ms. Flint
