Please encourage your child to get a good night’s sleep, eat a healthy breakfast each morning, and bring a snack.

*Multiplication- We are still working on our facts each day. This week we will continue with the 9’s and add in the 7’s and 8’s facts. Keep reviewing and practicing facts at home with them. It really does make a difference!

* Flash cards* Here is a great strategy you can use at home, especially if your child is not a big fan of flash cards! It’s better to master small amounts each day, then feeling overwhelmed with a big stack of flash cards all at once.

1 Rather than going through a HUGE stack all at once-pick5.

2 Hold up a card- if your child knows it right away, put it down in the “easy” pile.

3 If they need time to figure it out, let them try. If they guess

wrong, tell them the answer, and ask them to repeat the

whole problem back to you. Put this card down in the “challenge”

pile.

4 Continue this through all 5 cards.

5 Then, pick up the “challenge” pile, and run through it

again. Some of the “challenge” cards might end up in the

“easy” pile then!

*The goal is to get all 5 into the “easy” pile!

***YOU CAN USE THIS STRATEGY WITH ANY CHILD WHO NEEDS TO STUDY ANY SUBJECT WITH FLASH CARDS.
