Your child brought home a yellow sheet for you to sign that showed their progress in our math fact timed tests for addition and subtraction. Each child in our class has already made drastic improvements. We feel confident that they are well on their way to meeting our 4th grade benchmark of 50 addition and subtraction facts in less than 2 minutes.
The red practice sheet is hopefully helping to make this an obtainable goal. Each week our 4th graders are required to practice 4 nights for between 5-10 minutes. It is his/her decision what nights this is depending on your family's schedule. We brainstormed fun and effective ways to practice. Our list included addition and subtraction war, flash cards, math wraps, songs, triangle-shaped flash cards, and various computer games. I will post a list of the recommended websites on our blog.
