MAD MATH MINUTES
The first graders seem to be enjoying the challenge of Mad Math Minutes. Several have already moved on to the next level. When your child gets three perfect scores, they advance to a tougher test. We will continue doing these once a a week through the end of the year. I know there will be a few who make it to multiplication!!! Yay. Please continue to practice math facts daily, whether in the car, on the computer, or with flash cards at home. Make a fun game of it and keep the interest level high.
Studying for Spelling Tests
One of our moms, Angie Homeyer, was kind enough to “load” all of our first grade spelling lists on to the website, spelling city. Please check out this link. I promise that your child will enjoy using this method to study! This will only include the list of 10 words for the grade. (Each classroom has different Challenge Words.) Simply follow this link to help your child try it out! http://www.spellingcity.com/AJHomeyer
