This school year, we will be working on math skills in the following areas: Number Sense, Computation, Data Analysis, and Geometry/Measurement.
We will be taking timed tests every week. Depending on how time works out, we might do between 1 and 3 timed tests a week.
1st Quarter - Addition timed tests
2nd Quarter - Subtraction timed tests
3rd Quarter - Multiplication timed tests
4th Quarter - Multiplication and division (if ready) timed tests.
Suggestions on how to help your child:
1. Practice flashcards with your child every night. Use the schedule for timed tests to decide which flashcards to focus on more each quarter.
2. When your child is finished with their homework, go over it with them and talk about how they solved the problems.
3. Encourage your child to use math daily.
4. If you are able to, allow your student to play Prodigy (https://www.prodigygame.com/Play/) at home. This website helps students practice math concepts they have already learned and more they will learn this year.
