June Activities


If you do not check out our Holiday Heyday page each month, then you are missing a great opportunity to teach some invaluable math skills.  The calendar of June and June activities have been linked by Mrs. Odom, and you are encouraged to visit it for a day full of fun and learning.  This page is located across the top of our blog, but you may click on the link above to be redirected to the activities for June.

Holiday Heyday April Posted

2011-03-27_1352Each month, Mrs. Odom updates to the current calendar month and provides links to fun activities for the month. We encourage you to go to the page tab at the top of our blog and have your own students visit these sites. If you would like further practice with your students on questions concerning calendar skills, please click and print out the pdf questions.  This is a wonderful way to review the difference between “day” and “date”, concepts of day, week, and month, and provide practice locating information on a calendar.  Often we assume that students have a mastery knowledge of these basic skills when in fact, they do not. This repetitive review will reinforce learning needed for more difficult math concepts.

Math Moments


Spring break has ended and we all head back to school on Monday. Sorry, but that just had to be said. During these last few days, I have been searching for sites that might be helpful for those last minute brush-ups on Math Skills at the intermediate levels – 3rd, 4th, and 5th. Students and parents are encouraged to visit the links below.

Review of Math Skills

The TAKS Math tests are quickly approaching and the intermediate grade levels are honing their math skills. If you are wondering what you can do to help your child at home, you might want to visit these sites to view some of the tasks our students will be expected to perform. We will continue to work at school and appreciate all that you can do at home as well. No child can be fully educated without teamwork between school and home. Communication, cooperation, and collaboration are key ingredients.

I hope that these sites help. Click on the grade level below:




Practicing Measurements

This post will provide students with the chance to do some measurement practice. Click on the picture below and you will be asked to guide the ant to the picnic by measuring the distance between the markers. Click on the word “Ruler” in order to use the online inch ruler.  You may rotate the ruler by clicking on the icon at the end of the ruler which turns it.  This game will help you when you get ready to measure perimeter on your TAKS test. Have fun!
