*Test- 11/16/17

We will begin to learn multiplication in 3rd grade!  Please remember to study multiplication facts each night with your child.  Memorization is the key to learning multiplication facts! Your child will have a "Math fact Café" sheet to work each night to reinforce multiplication facts, but they will also have numerous opportunities to work on it throughout the day.

Your child will have a "Math Fact Cafe'" test every Friday.

Please make sure you are helping your child study their multiplication facts each night. It is imperative that your child knows their multiplication facts in 3rd grade!
