Math At Home

Parents, if your child has trouble with their math homework, the instructional video from the day on the enVision Math website can always be watched at home. To access the video after logging in, students can click on the “Explore” button on the right side of the banner. From there they can click on topic, and then select the lesson. They can also access their book once they login. If you want to keep an eye on your child’s topic test scores (even though I’ll aways send them home, as I did last week), after your child logs in and clicks the link at the top that says, “Parents.” You’ll be able to see all of their scores. I showed the children how to access their books, videos, and test scores today, so they should be able to help you if needed. FYI, at the moment there are some issues with the online version of enVisions, and once you login to it, you have to scroll to the bottom of the page to select the correct version that we use, Third Grade, Common Core Edition.

Last week your child should have brought home a set of vocabulary cards for our next topic of study in math, Number Sense: Addition and Subtraction, as well as a rounding chart. It’s possible your child may need to refer to these while doing homework over the next couple of weeks. Your child also should have brought home a rounding game that he/she can play with you using playing cards to help reinforce this skill. They might not be quite ready for the game until later in the week though.
