DREAMBOX MATH PROGRAM

DreamBox is an online math program that helps all students to achieve better and faster math proficiency.  It is very important that students strengthen their math skills in order to prepare for the rigorous math curriculum that exists in the older grades.  We will be using this program in the classroom, but it is essential that students find time to continue their learning at home. 

Please use your child's username and password in order to assess the website from home.

   

MYON READING PROGRAM

Class 202 started using the MyOn Reading Program for homework.  It is very important that students use this site on Tuesdays and Thursdays  for at least 20 minutes.  Any student that reads over 40 minutes or more on MyOn will receive a prize from my treat box in order to reward such good effort in developing stronger reading skills.  Also the texts on this program have assessments at the end, so please ensure that your child is taking these quizzes.  On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, I want students to read actual books and log in the information.  Remember parents must sign their initials on the log sheets.  It is very important that your child reads daily at home in order to build fluency and comprehension.  Make sure that the reading material is on your child's current reading level.

RECENT CURRICULUM

 

 

Reading: Students are learning how to study realistic fiction stories.  First, we are focusing on character actions, traits, and motivations (ATM Strategy).  Also we are identifying the important story elements such as characters, setting, problem and solution.  In addition, story retelling and lessons learned are being discussed.  Along with these areas, students are required to used text evidence to support their ideas.

Writing: Students are creating their own realistic fiction stories.  We are starting with the planning phase and figuring out how to develop realistic characters, settings, problems, and solutions.  The class is very excited to explore their imaginations and creativity.  We are also using mentor texts to help us explore author craft.
