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.
This is a great opportunity for students to choose their grade level and progress through an online math assessment. Assessments are available for grades 1 – 12. Work through these questions with your parents. Just click on the A+ Click link below and make your selections.
While reading my RSS feeds this weekend, I came across these excellent pages. Students and parents may use these page links to review Math skills and Practice reading skills. The story pages address Beginning Readers and the Classics. Thank you, Johnnie.
Each 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.
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.
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:
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!
