ALEKS Math Incentives

Happy New Year!

So, what's the Scoop?

Before I get to the 'scoop', I just want to take a moment to say that I hope you all had a wonderful and blessed Christmas with your family and friends.


Because 2014 is getting off to a very snowy and COLD start, I thought we should have an incentive to help us get back into the groove before Monday! And, as a BONUS...you can stay inside in your jammies, all warm and toasty, while you earn your reward!


To earn your reward, you must complete the following BEFORE Monday:


3rd and 4th Grades: Earn 'free time' for Online Math Games


  • Learn at least 10 topics AND review on Sunday to earn 'free time' for Online Math Games next week!

*Don't forget to practice your math facts too!


5th & 6th Grades: Earn Reduced Time for the first school week of the New Year!


  • Learn at least 10 topics AND review on Sunday to earn reduced time for the week
    (3.5 hours instead of 4 hours)
  • Learn at least 15 topics AND review on Sunday to earn reduced time for the week
    (3.0 hours instead of 4 hours)


1st Hour ALEKS (7th Grade): Earn Reduced Time for the first school week of the New Year!


  • Learn at least 10 topics AND review on Sunday to earn reduced time for the week (4.5 hours instead of 5 hours)
  • Learn at least 15 topics AND review on Sunday to earn reduced time for the week (4.0 hours instead of 5 hours)


Good luck! I can't wait to see you all on Monday!


Enjoy the rest of your break, and stay warm!

P.S. Review, Review, Review!!!

Don't forget to review this week, even if you choose not to earn the reward! Reviewing is EXTREMELY important to your ALEKS success! Also, please remember...if you choose NOT to review on Sunday, you will most likely fall back in your progress (blue bar) after your Monday Assessment this week (because you have been on Christmas Break for two weeks).


The more topics you learn + the longer you spend on your Sunday review = better progress each Monday! Don't forget to take notes AND use them on your Assessment!!!


*7th Grade: Make sure you get your notebook in order, as the end of the semester is next Friday!
