Math for the rest of the year...

We have reached the point in the school year where all of our math standards have been taught. As a grade level, we have made the decision to pull small groups and work on specific standards with specific children, based on their needs. Your child may or may not have homework on any given night. The homework they are given will be based on their specific academic needs. Please be sure to check your child's agenda nightly to see if they have homework.

In order to pull small groups while also keeping our other students engaged and challenged, we are asking that you please allow your child to bring in their own technology device. Unfortunately, we only have 5 iPads and 3 computers in each of our classrooms. We would like to have the students who are not working with a teacher to be working on either IXL or Moby Max. Both of these apps are educational and match our 2nd Grade South Carolina State Standards. If your child has a device and you are willing to allow them to bring it to school for the remainder of the year, please send a hand written note stating that you give your child permission to bring and use their device at school. The devices will only be used for educational purposes and will stay packed away in their book bags when not being used. Please understand, the school will not be held responsible if a device is broken.
