## Prodigy Game

The is an Online tool that I believe will benefit our 6th grade students with their math skills.

I sent home parent letters and student login information on Friday. I have copies of login information for anyone who needs their login information printed again. I will occasionally give an assignment from the online tool. Set up and begin playing…

Please email me if you have any questions.
