Welcome to the title 1 math blog! I am a first year teacher here at Hartville Elementary. I am very excited to be a part of the district and have enjoyed working with your child. I look forward to a successful year with improving math skills!
I will post information on my blog that I find important for you and your child to review throughout the school year including videos, websites and other links for extra math practice!
The most important aspect in math at this grade level is to constantly review basic math facts as much as possible. There are many wonderful links that can give your child that extra practice. Many of those links can be found on your teacher's porta portal. I also have a ports portal that your child can use. Another resource we use three times per week in the small instruction classroom. That link is xtramath.org/. This site tracks your child's success over time to show growth. The students began by watching a video on how "xtramath" works then proceeded with a pre-assessment with basic facts to decipher an appropriate level to begin. Once your child masters all of his or her addition skills he or she will earn a certificate and move on to subtraction followed by multiplication and division. The second grade students also have access to IXL, which is another wonderful site for extra practice on second grade math skills.
If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me.
