Hello everyone.  

Solving puzzles can be a great ackomplishments.  It can fill you with a sense of accompliment and satisfaction.  Struggling with a puzzle can be frustrating and defeatist.  I enjoy math for the first reason.  Unfortunately too many of our students struggle and give up before they get to the satisfaction state.  You are an important part of the educational process.  But living through my own children's and students'math struggles has shown me that when I stay positive, they stay positive.

One website that can help us be a valuable resource for your student is onlinemathlearning.com.  When you get on the site click the grade.  Then find the lesson (see above picture).  There are video examples for the lessons.  I encourage you to watch the videos with your student.  

On the subject of working math problems with your student, if you haven't asked them about First in Math, here's your chance.  Most students have reached 500 stickers so they can add a famiy member.  If you'd like to be added I can get help you set up your account.

I'm grateful for all the parents who work hard to support their children and their teachers.  

 


Hello.  It's great to be back into a routine.  We, the Title I Team, have been checking students for growth and development.  The students have done very well.  There were just a few standards we needed to review and then dive into the new standards for their new levels. 

When students are have particular problems with a concept, I try to do a video to help them and you understand the concept. I'm working on being able to email those video directly to you.   

One area that will benefit all students is memory and review of basic facts.  Here are some websites to help support development of math fluency and other concepts.  Last I checked they were all still working but technology changes fast so some might have a redirect.
