When working on word problems, have your child draw a picture of each sentence. Comprehension of the words is very important. When they get the answer, have them label the answer with a word after it.  Ex.  45 balls    2 pieces of pie



Best use of computer time to help your child at school with math:


i-Ready     -      Your child knows how to find it and knows how to log in. This is our school program and helps students fill gaps in math learning based on their last i-Ready Diagnostic score. Diagnostics are how we determine growth.


Remember, the public library is a great place to use a computer.



Thanks for all you do to partner with us in your child’s education!
