(Our Spelling sentences will no longer be sent home. Students will now be writing VOCABULARY SENTENCES. They will have the same rules. Each sentence will need to be at least 5 words long. Students need to start each sentence with a different word. All words must be spelled correctly. Sentences will be sent home on Monday and due on Thursday.)

Math:
-We will be working on Chapter Four which involves more adding and begins to get more challenging. We will also be reviewing skills practiced throughout the school year. We need to practice often so we don’t forget.
-Some students are struggling with basic facts, especially in subtraction. Please help your child memorize all facts instantly. No one should be using their fingers at this stage. Thank you for your support.
-----------------------------------------
STUDY ISLAND:
Please be sure to have your child practicing on Study Island as much as possible from home. It is a program that has been PROVEN to help students learn at an accelerated pace when used properly and often.


Math Fact Practice:
Please have your child go on xtramath.org daily to practice their math facts. You can write the time down on their logs that they are practicing on this website. If they finish a session, they can always log off and log back on in the same day. They will need either your email address that you used to sign them up or my email address which is lcoverick@summithill.org
They will type their first name.
Then they will need their pin number.
Every time a student passes an operation they will receive a certificate and a rubber ducky as their reward!
Thank you for your support.
