 Dear Parents,

**Mad minute tests are now a timed MINUTE test.  We finished all our facts 2-12 and we have now circled back to the beginning but with reduced time.  The students should be able to quickly give an answer to their facts at this point.  Also, as an added incentive, if your student gets a "100" on their mad minute test, they will be exempt from the times tables homework for those facts as well as any subsequent mad minute tests for the week.  However, the grade received on Friday or by Friday is the grade for that test. 

This week will be the 11's times tables.  Make sure your child practices these facts as part of their homework.  Study those facts!!!  We are continuing to work on fractions.  The children are doing wonderfully with them!

In Science, we will finish our unit on Energy and Ecosystems.  There will be a unit test  tomorrow.  As always, the children will be able to use their textbooks.  However, please help me to stress to them, to take their time and to look back in their text.  This is a study skill they should have and will need in the upper grades and beyond.

In Social Studies, we will continue learning about the Southeast region of the United States.

3rd Grade is continuing to work on  fractions.  3rd grade will be practicing the 12's  for their times tables this week.   Study those facts!!

Report Cards were issued for 3rd Term on Thursday, April 4th.  If you have not yet returned the signed, signature slip acknowledging you have seen the report card, please do so by Monday, April 8th.  Thank you!

I hope everyone has a wonderful week!

Mrs. Wall
