Focus on Math

Our current focus in the classroom is improving our math skills, specifically computation skills.  This week, each student completed a mad minute task which was a collection of multiplication facts.  We will begin each class over the next 6 weeks with a fun multiplication (e.g. bizz-buzz, dominoes, card war, Xtramath) and teach towards improving our decoding of math questions by identifying key words in the questions.  Please encourage your children to complete Xtramath at home if they have not had the opportunity to do so at school that day.  Hopefully we will see an improvement in their computation skills over the course of the next 6 weeks.
