Vocabulary Words coming soon.  

Writing:  We are doing weekly writing at the end of each weekly story.  The children should include supporting details from the story, correct punctuation, and capital letters at the beginning of each sentence.

Go Math.PNGGoMath:  We will continue with chapter 5 with 2 digit subtraction with regrouping.   It has included regrouping,  breaking apart tens and ones, writing equations to represent subtraction,  and finding differences using problem-solving strategies. 

It is important that you have your child go to Launchpad and have them do  Compass Reading and Math activities and at least 3x per week.  They should also do Prodigy as often as possible.  FasttMath would help with learning those facts too.

Activity ICON.PNGLook for this icon after you go to Launchpad(hold the control key and click launchpad). It's got everything you'll need!  The children know their usernames and passwords.

They should be working on one reading and math compass activity every day. The weekend would also help them as well. After each activity, there should be a quiz that they are to take.  Sometimes it takes more than one activity to get to a quiz. On the ones where they have to answer questions, just let them type one sentence, choose one of my names listed, and send it in.  After that, they should be able to move on to another activity.  If they aren't moving on, it's because they haven't completed every item on that activity. I get reports every week, Wednesdays and Sundays.  Big brother is watching US- you and me.  (smile)
