Dear Parent,

I am pleased to tell you that we will be using a website called IXL in our classroom this year. IXL is a comprehensive learning program offering unlimited math practice across thousands of skills—all of which are aligned to Georgia Standards. One of the best things about IXL is that your child can access it from home, so you have a chance to see your child’s progress!

To get your child started on your home computer, please follow these easy steps:

  1. Go to https://www.ixl.com/signin/pinerelem
  2. Enter your child’s username and password (pasted in their AGENDA) and click “Sign in.”
  3. Click on any skill to start learning!

IXL is designed to help your child learn at his or her own pace. The program is adaptive and will adjust based on your child’s demonstrated understanding of the material. All of your child’s results will be saved, so you can monitor his or her progress anytime by clicking on Analytics. For on-the-go practice, you can download IXL’s free tablet apps for iPad, Android, or Kindle and sign in with your child’s username and password.

I hope you’ll encourage your son or daughter to use IXL regularly. Here’s to a year of working together to make learning fun for your child!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Powers

Happy New Year!

Welcome back to all! Today was a very busy day back to school. I enjoyed listening to everyone share their stories about the break with the class. We had a few sleepy friends, but I know that we’ll be ready to rock and roll on Tuesday.

MATH: NBT.6 Whole number quotients and remainders (long division)… Students will be able to find whole number quotients and remainders with up to  four digit dividends and one-digit divisors using strategies based on place value.

Please continue to have your child work on www.xtramath.org if they still struggle with their multiplication/division facts. They must know their facts through 12 by memory. We will also be using www.ixl.com which covers all of the 4th grade math state standards. This website is great for review and helps to give students the extra practice needed on the standards that they may struggle with. All students will have their username and password glued on the inside of their agenda Tuesday morning. For more information, please read the parent letter that I posted further down on this webpage.
