Reading, Writing, and Social Studies: To see what the students are doing in reading, writing, and social studies, please visit
Mrs. Smith's web page.









Reading: Students are to read a minimum of 30 minutes each night, five days per week, record what they've read in their planner and have a parent/guardian sign that they agree with what was recorded. This will be checked each Friday. 

On occasion, other homework will be assigned if work is not completed in class or for special assignments.

If you wonder why we don't assign more homework, here's a good article that explains our perspective: "31 Things Your Kids Should Be Doing Instead of Homework"  http://www.parent.co/31-things-your-kids-should-be-doing-instead-of-homework/

~ EXTRAS ~

Scratch: Computer science coding. This is a fun site to practice coding to create a moving masterpiece. 
Our class link is:





Amplify Fractions
: gain a better understanding of fractions by going through a series of lessons and practice problems at https://math.amplify.com/fractions/dashboard 
(use class code N2PVKX).

Code.org: Students will be introduced to the computer science field of coding. 
Log into our classroom site at https://studio.code.org/sections/MGJCZS.

Each student has a password that they have saved in their planner for this website. As students figure out the steps for passing each level, the levels progressively become more challenging.



Math - www.prodigygame.com/play - students will have login information written in their planners. This game is full of math questions similar to what we will be studying in class. Practice on this site will help increase confidence in solving different types of problems.
