Our Moby Max Ninja Master award goes to Mason!

We’ve moved on to the study of the multiplication facts sixes through nines! Five students have mastered all their facts! The goal is to master them by the end of 3rd grade, so practice, practice, practice! Practice through Moby Max, flash cards, apps, etc. are all acceptable. Whatever gets your child to practice consistently is the best method.

Cursive handwriting is going along beautifully. Curiously, some of the children are actually better at cursive than printing.

The children had a blast writing a story in the “graphic novel” way this week. Some of the children want to take them home to complete them since we’re moving on. The next 5 weeks we’ll work on opinion writing. You’ll enjoy reading their pieces!

Thanks for everything you do!

Mrs. Pennington
