Saxon Math




Attention Parents:

Your child will be bringing home math work every night, except for Fridays.  The math homework usually consists of a fact sheet (B side) and a written homework sheet (B side).  The A side of  both sheets will be completed in class together. The A side can be used as an example of how to do the problem on the B side.  Your child will also be getting a math fact card envelope with math fact cards.  It is very important to have your child practice their math facts nightly.  We will be adding new facts weekly starting with addition facts (beginning of the year), then subtraction (middle of the year), and multiplication (end of the year).  Please add their new fact cards to the envelope when they get them and keep them at home to practice with. We usually have a math assessment every Friday.  If your child regularly completes the homework and practices their math fact cards, they will do well on the math assessments.
