The students will begin timed math tests. They will have one every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. It will be 20 problems, 10 addition and 10 subtraction in 2 minutes. They will all begin adding and subtracting the 1’s facts. They will need to pass 2 tests; either 1 or 2 wrong,  in order to add and subtract the 2’s facts. They will take tests until they reach the 10’s facts. At that point, I will challenge the students that have successfully passed all their tests. You will know the facts your child is on, because you will have to sign their test every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
