Preparing for STAAR

Monthly Book Challenge

Because March was a short month, we are going to continue our Pennant Flag challenge. Students can draw their favorite book character on the pennant flag to receive a free book! If you child already completed the March challenge, they are welcome to do it again by drawing a different book character.

Math Chat

We are excited to share with you an awesome series of math music videos from NUMBEROCK on YouTube. They have songs to help your students learn just about any math concept in elementary song. We highly recommend you subscribe to their channel on YouTube and encourage your students to watch! Here's one of their videos on measurement below.
