Welcome May! 🦋

We can not believe it’s already May! Our last month of the school year is packed with learning and memories. We are working on finishing up our grammar symbols, compound words and level box lessons. In math, we will continue working on fractions and geometric shapes and review of skip counting and even/ odd numbers. We will work on U.S symbols as well as laws and rules, push pull (forces) simple machines,and gravity.


Students will have their spelling/vocabulary quiz on Friday’s. Please check take-home folders for any information or reading assignments.

MobyMax:  We are excited to implement a new web-based curriculum called MobyMax in our classroom. Placement tests that accurately identify where your child excels, and where his or her “missing skills” are. Targeted instruction to “fill in” those missing skills. Systematic review sessions that ensure that your child retains 100% of what he or she has learned. School code:  fl4013, u/n (first name), p/w (first name).

Xtramath: (Ms. Tiffany’s Class) We are using a program called XtraMath to increase speed and accuracy in arithmetic. Your child is invited to spend a few minutes each day practicing math on a computer, tablet, or phone. XtraMath is free at  xtramath.org. Here’s what you need to do: In the app or on the website, select Enroll. Enter your email address and child’s enrollment code. Please email me if you need the code. This program will be active over the summer for “Xtra” practice.
