The Prugh Crew
Week of June 1st
We have come so far this year! Please don't let the "summer slide" affect you child's amazing progress. Encourage reading, writing, and math practice all summer long!
Our Prugh Crew wikipage will be accessible all summer, so they may play the games, access Google Classroom, and practice on Spelling City. iStation will also be available for home access, as well as Xtramath.
They also love bedtimemath.org!

I do not assign weekly homework. I expect my first graders to study their weekly spelling words, log into iStation for 30 minutes per week, and read at least 15-20 minutes per night. Please let me know if you are having problems logging in.
There is also an iStation app available to students.
They may read with you, to you, or on their own. I hope they play outside, with friends, and try some extra curricular activities too.
