Continuing to reteach concepts. We use whiteboards, worksheets; students have a Math Journal to work out their problems.
In Ms. Kempe's classes, she is working on Decimals, Fractions & Percentages, which we are also working with in our 6th grade Supplemental classes.
In Ms. Parrish & Ms. Chiang's classes, they are working with decimals (addition/subtraction). So 5th grade Supplemental classes are working on these concepts.
In all classes we are doing Aleks on the IPads. First step, students took a Knowledge Check. This entailed 30 questions on various concepts. Aleks then took the data and put together topics the student needed to learn/master to help him/her in their regular Math class. Once a week, students work on their individualized topics for one class period.
We are also utilizing the IPads to do a program called Math Drills, to help with multiplication facts. Please continue to work with your student on their multiplication facts every night for at least 5-10 minutes a night. It is important for your student to know their multiplication facts, as this will help them be more successful in their Math classes.
