I hope you are all having a good week. Your children seem to be adjusting well to the new school routine.
Today I had all my students log onto the basic fact website, Xtra Math. This is an excellent website and a great way for your child to practice their basic facts both in and out of school. (Many of your children are already familiar with this program from 2nd grade.) Today your child took a placement test. Please look for the sheet in your child’s backpack explaining how you can log them on at home. If your child is already using this program at home, please enter the new information so their progress will show up under my class.
Read for at least 80 minutes over the course of the week and turn in the pink reading log on MONDAY. Practice basic facts (I would love it if you used Xtra MathJ) for 5 minutes a night and hand in log on FRIDAY. The math log is on the back of the homework sheet.
Most of you signed up at Curriculum Night. If you have not yet scheduled a conference please email me and we can work out a convenient time. Conferences are October 26th and 27th. (Open times on the 26th: 2:20, 3:40 and 4:00 Open times on the 27th: 7:30,2:00 and 2:20) If none of the open times work for you, I am available to meet most days before school.

Have a great week!
