After 2 weeks of Math Review a Math Review Quiz is given to test the math skills practiced in class. The graded quiz will be sent home for a parent signature. Please sign and make sure the student brings it to school the next day. All quiz are kept with teacher for records and should not be kept at home. Students successful in Math Review Quiz will earn class dojo points between 10 to 20 points every quiz, to use towards SOAR store dollars. Classwork Classwork consists of group discussions and presentations, class bar graph, fact fluency, independent work and exit tickets. If your child is not being successful in his or her classwork, we need to discuss how we can work together, to find a way for the student to find success. Ask your student about using strategies in math and problem solving strategies. Strategies are for student success and is it is imperative that they are used at all times. Homework Homework will be given everyday. Please make sure your child brings homework everyday. They earn class dojo points for homework, to use as SOAR store dollars. The answers should not be just circled. Homework is given on a daily basis to measure progress and should not be taken lightly. Please ask your child about math strategies and make sure that they are using and showing all their strategies for homework. Please encourage your child to practice multiplication facts every day for at least 10 minutes. They can use flash cards (make their own) or simply write down the facts and practice. After school tutoring If your child has been identified for after school tutoring, you will receive a letter. Please sign and return the next day so that your child can stay for tutoring.
