Does your Borchardt Bear have their Multiplication Facts memorized?
Here is a great website to practice the facts. This site allows the students to take a multiplication quiz on the computer. When they press finished, the computer will correct it for them! They are also given the choice to print out the test too!
Here are some guidelines you can use to help your child prepare for tests, eliminate night-before panics, and lessen test anxiety: * Before the test: On the day the test is announced (and provided that your child tells you about it), work with your child to plan a study schedule which does not leave everything for the last minute. * Encourage your child to study “actively.” Children who underline key words in the text (if this is allowed), take notes, and write outlines while reading are more likely to do well than those who merely let their eyes gaze down the page.

Interesting Facts About Bullying: Researchers note that if a victim fights a bully and the bully wins, this loss will only make matters worse for the victim. Consequently, researchers argue that fighting back should not be encouraged. Instead, the child should be encouraged to walk away and tell an adult if he feels someone is about to hurt him. According to disability, harassment, civil, and criminal laws bullying can easily become a crime.

Present your questions or concerns to the teacher, then listen to what the teacher says in response. Don’t hesitate to ask for explanations of any terms or language you don’t understand.

For Student Safety
All adults must be prepared to show a photo ID when checking students out of class. As we become acquainted with parents and begin to know which students belong to which adults, we can relax on this requirement. But, until we know who is who the photo ID is necessary.
