MATH FACT FLUENCY
It is extremely important that students are practicing their math facts. I have assigned XtraMath, an online fact fluency website, to students daily. Their password is their 4 digit number in their MPS email address. They can also access the site through Clever. They do need to be logged into their active directory. More resources for practicing math facts:
Quizlet - Make Flashcards for all subject areas
K-5 Learning - Print Flashcards
Online Notebooks and Incentive Board
Notebooks: I created notebooks in our homeroom for ELA, Math, and Science. I will post notes taken in class so students that have special accommodations, missed a section, was absent, or late to class can go back and copy the notes in their notebook. This does not take the place of in class taking notes. Students are expected to take notes in class!
Incentive Board: Five students will be selected throughout the week and their names will be posted on the Wall of Fame board. Students can earn this by having cameras on, participating, 100%, being on time, completing assignments, etc.
I recommend parents do a daily check-in with students to make sure all work has been completed. Students should SHOW you that their assignments have been completed. This would be a great opportunity for you to review their work as well as check that it was submitted.
Assignments are given daily. Students are to complete these assignments on the day assigned unless otherwise noted. It is easy to fall behind, so coming up with a daily check-in that works for your family is helpful. Students should be working independently on their assignments before and after their 30 minute lunch break and when they are not in a live class.
We are not using the grade book in Canvas. You can view your child's grades, missing assignments, etc. in the MPS Parent Portal and MPS Student Portal. If you need help with the portal, feel free to reach out to me.
