I am looking at having the Topic 2 Math test on Monday September 14.

## Homework

Again, please make sure that homework is turned in on Monday's (this week it will be turned in on Tuesday because of the holiday). It is also very important that your child practice their math facts at home! We took our first timed test last week and practicing facts at home will greatly help on the timed tests. I know that it seems like a lot to do every night but we talked on Friday in class meeting and came up with some ideas, so ask your child how they can manage everything!
