Xtra Math- The purpose of this website is to strictly focus on addition and subtraction fluency. It will help them feel more comfortable with their basic math facts. There is an app for this site but is available for purchase only. Please note, you can still access this site on an iPad without purchasing the app, you will just need to you will just need to go through the internet. The students were shown this site last week and are excited to try it out!
Read Write and Type computer program has begun! Your child may have brought home a certificate last week showing they passed level one of a computer program. We have begun a typing program called Read Write and Type. They are learning how to type on the computer and learning the location of all of the keys. We even cover up the keys while they are typing! We have just begun this program and many have just finished level one. If your child did not bring home a certificate, that is okay as they are not too far behind. They should be bringing it home soon. Have them show you the keys they learned and how they use their "spider fingers" on the home keys to type!
Please check the school website for important information each week and sign up for their weekly newsletter. You can go to the quick link page on the left margin. Scroll down to Wednesday envelope weekly and you should be taken to the page. It will be very helpful for you!
