You may recall that at our last parent-teacher conference, there was concern about the upcoming 100 math facts test. In this timed test, the second graders must complete 100 adding facts in five minutes or less. I was surprised and completely ecstatic when the results came home.
I checked with Ehren, "Did you do this test with a timer, in five minutes?" Then I double-checked with his teacher too. Yes, it was really true. Christian completed over 80% of the test in time allotted. That wasn't too shabby either. At our parent-teacher conference this week, I found out they just completed another similar test, and both boys got A's on that one. I'll be looking forward to seeing that test come home in their folders! More positive things to dwell on. Now I'm not as apprehensive about the 100 subtraction facts test later this year. They get six minutes on that one!
