I’m sending home a letter about a Math program that we’ll be using in our room to practice Math fact fluency. It’s called XtraMath. You will be able to use a code that is unique to your child to log into the XtraMath website and work on Math facts from home! I already have the code for your child – you will find it at the bottom of the letter. You can easily access the XtraMath website by going to my GRADE ONEderful blog, and clicking on the link at the top of the page that says COMPUTER FUN! From there, you will see the link to XtraMath on the left hand side of the page, under the word MATH. The kids logged in from school, so they may even remember how to help you get to the site! Have fun practicing those Math facts! The faster the kids know them, the better!
Some of the kids are running low on erasers. Ask your son/daughter if s/he is borrowing from a friend! It’s nice to share every once in a while, but I’d like everyone to have their own eraser! We do have a few extra’s to share in our room, but they disappear and are lost within minutes! Well, it seems that way to me, anyway! If you send a small bar eraser to school, please write your child’s name on the eraser. This way we can return the eraser to it’s owner when someone finds it on the floor. Thanks for your help!
