November 13 -16

Thank you to all the parents who came to the Elementary Showcase! Have fun playing the math games at home. 🙂

This Wednesday we will have a math quiz on equivalent fractions, improper fractions, mixed numbers and comparing fractions. Extra-practice will go home on Monday. There will be a math test on Tuesday, November 21. Extra- practice will go home this weekend for that test.

There will be a vocabulary quiz on Thursday on the prefixes we had learned so far: pre-, un-, ex-, con- and sub-.
