 “Mathletics”

Schoolwide, we will be incorporating “Mathletics” into our nightly homework routine.  Mathletics is a captivating online math program that provides students with the tools they need to be successful learners, both inside the classroom and at home. The program includes courses that are aligned to the New York State Mathematics Standards, including Common Core.  This program is used throughout the world, engaging students with ages ranging from Kindergarten through High School. 

Every night your child will be assigned homework on Mathletics.  You can logon to Mathletics at home by going to http://community.mathletics.com/signin. Students will receive a card with their username and password on it.  The homework will take approximately 15 minutes per night. If you have trouble accessing Mathletics at home, please let us know immediately. 

As always, please email us with any issues or concerns.  Thank you for your continued support and cooperation!

“Homework”
Homework allows parents to have an active role in their child’s education and helps them to evaluate their child’s progress. Homework is an important time to make connections and reflect; on self, family, friends, new or familiar information, and the world beyond. What you present to your children will determine the heights they will climb to continue to maintain their academic success. Please be sure that your child is completing all of their homework every night. If there is an outstanding circumstance on any particular night, please let me know.

*Parent signatures are required each night in the “initials” section of your child’s daily planner.

Individual signatures on each piece of homework is not required.

“Math Sprints”

We will be implementing Math Sprints into our daily Mathematics lesson.  We will begin with 1 digit addition and subtraction for the time being.    Math instruction must include practice time for students. Students in all grades benefit from practice because it deepens their understanding and increases familiarity with the material. Similarly, drills are useful to reinforce and practice more rote knowledge and skills. Students benefit from practice because they are able to apply knowledge through interaction. Students connect with the material when they work with texts and concepts beyond a one-time exposure. When students practice using the knowledge through application, they connect with information on a deeper level. While drills used to be associated with a regimented style of instruction, they do have a place. Drills are used successfully when teaching students technique. For instance, when children are learning addition, they can do drills on each number set to help them memorize; they can then proceed to more difficult concepts that use the information obtained from drills. In physical education and music, coaches and teachers use drills as a method to hone skills that need repetition for improvement. Additionally, students can use this technique with one another for shared learning opportunities. These timed drills may be new to the students at first, but as time goes on the goal is to improve both time and accuracy in these basic but necessary Math skills.  These can also be used to highlight strength and weaknesses in computation skills, so we will know what to assist the children with both at school and at home.

“Grammar Challenge Thursday”

*Thursdays will be “Grammar Challenge Thursdays.”  Different aspects of proper grammar will be practiced and assessed on these days.  Some examples are sentence structure, reading comprehension, punctuation, finding errors in writing, etc.  

 
Writing Journals are due EVERY week and must be submitted by Friday.  Failure to do so, will affect the children’s’ eligibility for Wall of Fame for that Month, as well as affecting their ELA grade. Please make sure your child dates the entry, writes the topic and responds with at least 4 sentences.  Illustrations are always allowed.
