We have less than 6 weeks left of school, or 26 days (who's counting?)! Our time will be filled with new learning, reviewing what we've already learned, and celebrating how much we've learned together. We have covered all math standards with units taught this year and currently we are doing a big review. The MAP (Measure of Academic Progress) test and a district Common Core math test will be given May 29th and 30th. I will be sending home some recent math progress checks that we've done in class. These are quick samples that demonstrate student knowledge by standard. They've allowed me to do some reteaching and review in small groups as well as formed groups for acceleration. Please take a look at the work your child has been doing and review concepts with them. We have worked a lot around checking our work for accuracy and slowing down for quality control. Please involve your child in all things math in your lives; telling time, counting money, skip-counting, solving word problems, adding and subtracting numbers, and so on. Play games, challenge one another and have fun!
