Friday, May 3

1.  3 review math sheets- rounding, multiplication, and division- kids should have been able to finish in the 1.5 hours given today. Due to some kids not knowing their multiplication facts for quick recall, they will unfortunately have homework. All Math will take much longer and be much harder until kids take the time at home to memorize tables.  We rarely have time in school anymore to do this, as we are surging onwards with concepts that build upon the basic facts.
2.  Scholastic orders due- Friday.
3. Hotdog orders due- ASAP.
4.  Have a great weekend!
