Thanks to those who attended Math night last evening. Here is some of what we covered for those who weren’t able to be there.

Teachers and students shared how to do a Number Talk, demonstrating multiple ways to solve the same math problem. Students in all grade levels work on this method of problem solving in math. Ask your student to share how it is done.

Staff helped parents and children connect their personal electronic devices with some online practice apps so that students can use them at home.
We looked at:
IXL (grades 3-5)
EDM (grades k-5)
Reflex Math (grades k-2)

Lastly we talked about ways to be safe online. We reminded students not to share names, address or phone numbers online, and discussed ways for parents to restrict access to certain content for their children.
Here are some links we shared:

Portland High School Guest Readers

Yesterday, Portland High School came to read to our 5th graders! Just as you predicted, our 5th graders were thrilled and in awe of the big kids from PHS. Hopefully we will do it again soon :)

Please enjoy some highlights from this amazing experience in my homeroom.

Choose Kind
We are starting our Kindness Catcher Initiative in 5th grade. Amazing teachers Bridget Tidd and Dee Tutino are the leaders of this program at our school. Their ability to show compassion and to encourage students helped my class to understand the importance of choosing to be kind. Please enjoy some pictures from our kick-off!
