Mark Your Calendar for our TCE Family Math Night

Thorpe Creek's first Family Math Night is coming your way! Join us on Friday, November 11th anytime from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. for an evening of math fun! It will be an open house of games, activities, Spheros, a math scavenger hunt, and so much more, all focused on math concepts. You can come and go throughout the night as your evening allows. Our TCE PTO will be selling pizza for a quick dinner option. We hope you will join us for a family night of math fun and learning!

Moby Max

I talked to everyone during conferences about Moby Max, which is a math site that we use in first grade to practice our math fact fluency, but also can practice other math concepts. Although we have used it mostly in our classroom for math, it has reading, science, & social studies, and even vocabulary practice as well. This is a great way for them to practice at home.

Read Every Day!

We do not have official homework in first grade. However, we do encourage you to have your child read every night (or in the morning if that works better with your family's schedule). 10 minutes is a good reference for time (or divide it up). If your child is taking home one of my books each night, please remember to put it back in their green folder the next day so I can have them get a new one.
