**Remember XtraMath!!!!!  **Please continue working with your child, reviewing the multiplication facts.  One of the best ways to help study the multiplication facts is using flash cards. Every fourth grader is required to do TWO SESSIONS a week.  There will be a grade for XtraMath.  As long as your child does at least TWO SESSIONS a week, they will receive a 100.
