Weekly reminders-

*On Thursdays, make sure your child is studying and looking over their Math 4 Today, especially any that they had difficulty with. We do 4 boxes a day and check at the beginning of our block.*** The actual weekly quiz is on the back of our daily Math 4 Today. I hope this is helping students study more carefully. They need to be reviewing those problems that they have not mastered.

*If you have internet access have your child log onto his/her account and practice math fact fluency and math skills tailored to your child’s strengths and weaknesses
