Math Test, 9/4/13
Parents, be sure to go over the classwork that came home today as a great preparation for our Topic 2, Addition Strategies test. Also, hopefully you have noticed a yellow sheet inside the yellow homework folder – it says Addition Strategies at the top. Ask your child to explain the Zero, One more, Two More, Doubles, Near Doubles, Make Ten Strategies (plan) to you. We have been working diligently on these strategies daily.
Edline Computer Grading info coming home, 9/4/13 – look for it in your child's silver folder. This will be your 'ticket' to keeping track of your child's grades so there will be no surprises when the first interim report comes home on Thursday, Sept. 19th.
