6th and 7th Grade Intensive Math
Students and Parents.
I am glad to be back at work and to be able to provide some content area work for your student. Student work will be posted on the assignment page of my website.
Your child has been placed in this class to help them learn the foundational skills they are missing or have gaps in. The more they attend class, complete their work, and fully participate and engage in their learning, the more they will succeed. Many students who attend this class and give their full effort earn a level 3 on the FSA and do not need Intensive Math in the next grade.
This is an additional math class for your child; he/she is correct that there is no homework for this class!
If you see a missing grade on the portal it is ok. The * means your child was absent that day and received no grade or that I have not yet entered the grade into the gradebook. That neither helps nor hurts their grade. The more a student is in class, the more likely they are to do well on assessments and classwork.
Please be aware that students must look at each teacher's website in order to get work for that class. I will check for submitted work at least two times a day. Students may also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to ask any questions they might have. Khanacademy.com and IXL.com are two good online sources to see videos and tutorials of skills we are working on. Students will be receiving grades for the work that is submitted. At the present time, all work will be done electronically. In an everchanging world, we are striving to continue the education of our students. Please check the school website for any information that you may need. I will be happy to assist however is possible. Thank you for your continued support.
While school has been suspended, a great way for your child to continue to grow and learn is to have them log in to mobymax.com - they can go to the Math section and use the Math tile to pick up where they left off. Your child knows their username and password (we have used this website since the beginning of the year so they should remember). If they have forgotten then just email me and I will look it up for you. I recommend they do 45 minutes daily but if you prefer them to do more that's even better.
I hope you stay well and will be back in school soon.
