Math Manipulatives Survey

We will be beefing up our math manipulatives. The goal is to have appropriate manipulatives for each unit. We are also looking to provide professional development for the appropriate use of manipulatives with each unit.

Look for a survey link to come via email. Please complete the brief survey to let me know what you have and what you may need at this time.

Write Score

Our school will participate in Ga Milestones test prep by taking the Write Score Reading Assessment. The assessment will be Feb. 6-15 (grades 3-8). The assessment will be offered ONLINE. It’s like Write Score Writing but or Reading.

Grades 2, 3, 4, and 5 will take the Write Score Writing assessment during this window as well. I will email you when we get closer to the window to ensure you received access and send you instructions for the assessments.


Remember your students need to use iRead either 5 days a week for 10 minutes or 4 days a week for 15 minutes. Access iRead through the launchpad site (you will see the app). Please let me know if you need assistance with this program. Log in with STAR credentials.
