Spring NWEA Testing
It’s hard to believe we will begin our final round of NWEA testing this month! These tests are used to indicate the amount of growth each individual student has made this year. The NWEA test is taken very seriously. We are encouraging our students to take their time, think through each question, listen carefully, and answer each question to the best of their ability.  I have complete confidence that each one of my students can meet their end of the year goals if they try their best. We will be taking our Spring NWEA tests on Tuesday, April 24th and Thursday, April 26th. I am so proud of my students’ outstanding growth this year!

Congratulations to:  Alex for winning the Perseverance Award in March!  The character trait for the month of April is Citizenship.

Addition and Subtraction Facts
We are working on memorizing our addition and subtraction facts (+0 to +10, -0 to -10). We practice these facts daily. Each student has a set of flashcards in their desk. Once they master a set, I provide them with the next set. Please have your child continue to practice their math facts at home too. Memorizing these facts before second grade would be a huge benefit.

It was wonderful meeting with everyone during parent/teacher conferences.  Thank you for your support!
