State Assessments Coming Soon - April 4 - 7!!!!

Yes, the state assessments are headed to the math department soon.  They are schedule for the week of April 4 - 7 and I know how much you are ready for the tests.  We still have a few items to cover and hopefully will have some review time!!

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE practice on IXL - especially the areas of decimals and fractions - add, subtract, multiply, and divide - with NO calculator.  There are many other topics to be found on IXL so practice other concepts you are not sure about but try to hit decimals and fractions - BIG TIME!!!!

February 28 - March 4

This week sure got away from me!  I was talking to a parent about my blog and being able to find the homework assignments on here when I realized I had not posted the assignments for the week.  You all know how hectic my life has been because of the issues with my mom's health.  Yes, she is still in the hospital be we are hoping she gets moved to Dillon Living Center soon!!
