Your child came home with a “basic facts test” this week. This is a timed (90-second) test to assess each child’s knowledge of basic facts. Please acknowledge your child’s work. We will continue to assess their performance and we look for IMPROVEMENT with each timed test. Please know that your child is only in competition with him or herself. We will mix up the facts and use different strategies to improve their score. (look for the “zero” problems first, doubles facts, adding or subtracting one, etc.). Thank you for your continued support for your child’s education!!
