This will be a cumulative review week. We will spend time reviewing concepts that we have been working on all year. This will be good preparation for the Standardized Testing coming up soon.
Math: This week we are going to continue working on regrouping in addition. We will spend each day practicing regrouping. We will not introduce a new concept until after spring break.
Timed Tests: We will continue taking timed tests this week. We will have an addition test on Tuesday- 50 problems in 3:00, which is our goal time. Many students have already hit their goal! This is a required benchmark in first grade.
