Reminders:

*FYI- The orange homework folder will be sent home every Tuesday with student’s work that has been graded. This will let you see what we are working on in class and how well your child is doing.


*Math- On Mondays, students take a Math Computation quiz. It reviews addition and subtraction skills (multiplication and division will be added later on). This is a timed assessment. I will grade it on Monday and give back to the student to correct on Tuesday. They have until Friday to correct the questions that are missed. For each question that is corrected, I give back all points for a possible 100! (This is a weekly grade.)
