Ms. Lisa's Important Links                         Below are some great links to explore at home


READER'S RESPONSE

MATH


  

AMAZING MATH LINK that seamlessly connects to our new math curriculum, Engage Math.  This site will allow parents to help children with homework, and for parents and students to view missed lessons or review when needed (videos of problems included for each lesson!)  

PARENT RESOURCES AND HOMEWORK ANSWERS:  We all need a little help now and then, and sometimes knowing the answer can help you work backwards or have a better idea of what a question is asking.  Check out the TCSD link (also accessable by clicking on any district website  -> parents tab -> math help)

DREAMBOX - your child has a DREAMBOX account where he/she logs in and has immediate access to games that are targeted at their skill level.  This game is responsive, and I can see the progress your child makes on a seperate teacher page.  This can be a great option for supplemental math games at home.
