Thursday, May 24th second grade will be having their dress down day for Uganda, since we are on our trip. Please remember the colors are yellow, black, or red.
We have many summer birthdays. I told the students they can start celebrating next week. Please let me know when you'd like to, and hopefully it will work :)
Xtramath to help them with their memorization with basic math facts. It slows the process down when subtracting 2 digits, if they can't remember single digits facts. This program focuses on timed math facts, and progress at their own pace working towards a goal. The name and password is glued and highlighted in the beginning of their homework planner. Please note, this should not be done through this app, as it costs money to use that way.The website is xtramath.org .
Please be sure to only do it once day. The website says that they recommend that students do XtraMath only once per day, on as many days as possible. While students can sign in to XtraMath multiple times per day, additional sessions have diminishing educational value and decrease students’ enthusiasm for the program over the long run. Also, note that students get a progress quiz only at the beginning of the first session of the day. Subsequent sessions are practice only and do not affect the student’s mastery score. I will let you know when we do it in the classroom, so it's not done twice in one day.
If you need to reach me, please call or e-mail me. Remind is for newsflash and not as easy to communicate one on one on my end. Thank you!
