Think Through Math (TTM)

4th grade is doing an amazing job on their pathways in TTM. We have many students who have passed their pathways and completed their goal of 30 lessons. We also have students who have passed 60, 90, and even 120 lessons so far! Ask your child how many lessons they have passed on grade level and congratulate them on how great they are doing and to keep up the good work. Students earning 30+ lessons are eligible for monthly drawings to win prizes as well as classroom incentives. Remember, TTM is also available at home. Students may log in anytime from their home computers or tablets to complete lessons.
