Mrs. Karalias would greatly appreciate donations of empty egg cartons and newspapers for the Art room. These items are re-purposed as paint trays and table covers. Thank you! 

Parents,
All children will generally be expected to read complex texts independently and reflect on them orally and in writing. Whatever they are reading, students must show a steadily growing ability to discern more from and make fuller use of text, including making an increasing number of connections among ideas and between texts, considering a wider range of textual evidence, and becoming more sensitive to inconsistencies, ambiguities, and poor reasoning in texts.  Please do not allow your child to skip reading tonight.

"How many squares are shaded?
  How did you know?"

Flash two cards briefly and have her tell you the number that is represented. Ask her to explain how she saw the total number. Begin with easier numbers—multiples of 5 and 10. Gradually move to more complicated pairs.  These should be solved mentally, without pencil and paper.  Students are expected to solve 2-digit addition and subtraction problems mentally.  Click the links below to get started!
