Addition & Subtraction Facts:
As we have moved into subtraction with regrouping, memorization of math facts has become extremely important. Please practice math facts with your child at home NIGHTLY. It is very evident when a child has not memorized their math facts. They are often only 1 number away from the correct answer because they tried to subtract using their fingers and miscounted. Memorizing these facts is the only way to ensure they don't continue to make these errors.
Please practice your child's words work/spelling words with them nightly. They do take tests weekly and I can tell a huge difference in those students who are working at home nightly and those who are not.
Presentations will be February 6th in the morning. Parents are invite to attend. More information will be coming home this Friday and next Monday.
Please remember that you are to be preparing a costume at home for your child to wear the day of the presentation.
Also, they will be bringing their reports home with them on Jan. 30th (hopefully they will be finished writing them). Please make time for your child to practice presenting their report to you until they are comfortable.
100 Club Log and Book-It:
January is almost over! Please do not forget to log the books your child is reading nightly and initial the date on the Book-It calendar when they read for 20 or more minutes out loud to you. They will earn a free Pizza Hut pizza for reading every day.
