IMPORTANT REMINDERS

Star of the Day Presentations

I hope students have been enjoying working on their Star of the Day posters!


Project guidelines can be found HERE


Our Star of the Day presentations will begin on Monday, 4/18! Posters can be turned in on Mon., 4/18 OR on your child’s presentation day! (You may want to opt for the latter, so your child has the poster at home for practice.)


Please see below for your child's presentation date. The dates are assigned by student number. If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know!


5/17: Student 2

5/18: Student 1

Khan Academy (OPTIONAL)

As a supplemental resource, I will be assigning Math work from khanacademy.org. This is a wonderful resource for students who would like more practice with the concepts taught at school or would like more challenging Math work.


The website adapts the questions based on each child's level. The more questions students answer correctly, the harder the problems will get. The program will also make problems easier if students are struggling with correctly answering the problems.


Please see below on how to sign up. This information will also be posted on our class site under "Parent Resources".


  1. Sign up at khanacademy.org (or log in with their existing accounts)
  2. Visit khanacademy.org/coaches
  3. There, in the "Add a coach" field, enter the class code XEEF4D
