Weekly Digest

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We have our first big math test scheduled for Tuesday.  This is a unit test covering all number sense concepts since the beginning of the year.  From what I can tell, students understand the process of what we’ve learned.  Their errors are largely due to miscalculation, or “careless errors”, as I like to call them.  Those who have a lesser understanding of their number facts seem to fall into this trap more than others.  Knowing those facts truly helps the process when the work becomes more complicated.  Yesterday, I posted a practice sheet that is optional (it includes an answer key).  On tonight’s post, you’ll find a sample test from the last time I taught grade six.  Although it doesn’t cover everything we’ve done this year, it’s a good warm-up for what’s to come next week.  I’ll post the answers on the weekend.

Short week = short Digest!  This is all I’ve got for you for now.  Enjoy the weekend!
