Students are expected to fluenly know the multiplication facts to 12. These are an extremely important element of the math curriculum.

The three areas of science we will investigate this year are Earth, Physical, and Life sciences. The Scientific Method, experiments, and media resources will enrich our learning experiences.

Due to the Covid 19 virus, things have changed. Beginning on Wednesday, March 30, 2020, I will need you to do the following things for me.
First, you or your students will need to send me an email stating that they are online. Please be sure to do this by 10:00 a.m. as This is my way of taking attendance.
Every day your student should be working on i-Ready math. They will need to have a total of 45 minutes each week. In our classroom, I allowed them 15 minutes each day. Once the 45 minute goal is obtained, students may work on the fun math games each day as a reward!
Once student has logged in on the device they click the iReady tile and log in. From here they are ready to work. We have used this site al year long and student DO know how to access this.
For science, students log onto the school site and find the tile that says," Stemscopes". This is where I have placed assignments for the next two weeks.
