Why should we meet? We are all wondering about… – Common Core – State Testing – How to help our children when the math seems so different? – Why is it important for our child to learn it the “new” way?
Gym/Cafeteria Refreshments are awaiting you. Please enjoy! Games and activities are prepared for you to practice and play. Student models and photographs demonstrate our daily learning.
At this time… Session 1- please make your way to the cafeteria. We will see you back in 30 minutes. Session 2- we will begin in a few moments. Please make yourself comfortable.
Let’s get started While we are here we will: Review the testing standards for Grades 3-5 Present parent resources for support at home. Allow families time to use those resources right here tonight.
What should you focus on at home? Learning takes time. Using the right tools supports their learning. Build fact fluency using all of the basic facts.
