We are using a program called XtraMath to increase speed and accuracy in addition, subtraction, and multiplication. We are doing this during school hours but your child is invited to spend a few minutes each day practicing math at home on a computer, tablet, or phone. If you would like your child to do XtraMath on a tablet or smartphone, look for XtraMath in the app store. The app costs $5. On a laptop or desktop computer, he/she can do XtraMath for free at xtramath.org.
Here's what you need to do: In the app or on the website, select Enroll. Enter your email address and your child's enrollment code, (contact Mrs. Henderson). This will (1) create a parent account for you if you don't have one, (2) link your child’s account to your account so you can review his/her progress, and (3) save your child’s account information for easy sign in on that computer or device.
If you already have a parent account for your child from a previous class or personal use, then this enrollment process will allow your child to resume XtraMath where he/she left off rather than starting over in my classroom.
For more information about XtraMath watch the videos on their website, xtramath.org. Think of XtraMath as a math vitamin! For best results, your child should do XtraMath once per day as regularly as possible. It only takes a few minutes so make it a part of your daily routine. Math facts are the building blocks of your child's math education and your child will be well rewarded for the time they spend practicing on XtraMath.
