Monday-Editing Quiz and September: Responsibility Reading Skill Check Wednesday- Timed Multiplication Friday ~ Math Check Up, WWW Quiz Dropbox Updates In Dropbox, under the All Parent Folder, you will find the DLR book. Under the “Next Week” box in our newsletter, it will tell you what week we are on. If your child forgets DLR, they can print a page from the book. In addition, you may always work ahead or go back to practice from the prior weeks. Under the All Parent Folder, you will find Morning Math. We are on 28-32. This is what students do in class every morning to prepare for Math Check up. It does not come home with a grade, it is practice. I have added the newsletter and the SCHOLASTIC book order letter.
