Mr. Thomas Coffey’s 5th Grade Class News:

Mr. Thomas Coffey’s 5th class, along with other MVES students, have been working very hard at learning multiplication facts through the Rocket Math program.  Rocket Math is a ten-minutes a day paper and pencil, worksheet-based math facts supplemental practice curriculum. Students learn 2 facts and their reverses on each worksheet in a carefully controlled sequence which enables mastery at an individualized pace.  Students practice orally with a partner every day.  One minute timings assess when students are ready to move to the next set of facts.  Pictured above are students with the highest scores helping to reach the overall classroom goal.  They are:  Kaylee Cameron, Olivia Albright, Adam Bullock, and Joey Smith.  Keep up the hard work! A big thank you to Mr. Devin Hasty, currently completing his student teaching, for helping to make this program a success.
