    Parent e-Learning Tips and Videos

    We are in this together! As we continue with remote learning, we wanted to provide additional support for you as you assist your children with their lessons. We are stating with math tutorials. Each week, we will post videos for parents to explain the purpose of each math lesson, how it ties into previous learning, and the expected student outcomes for each lesson. Please see the links below and contact your child's teacher if you have questions. 

    Math Lessons 9.7 and 9.8 for Parents

    Math Lessons 9.9 and 9.10 for Parents

    Math Lessons 9.11 and 9.12 for Parents

    Math Lessons 10.1 and 10.2 for Parents

    Math Lessons 10.3 and 10.4 for Parents

    Please read for 20 minutes each night, practice math facts, and look for any additional work your child might not have finished in class.  Other first grade homework includes playing outside, eating dinner with your family (if you can) and getting a good night's sleep. Please contact your child's teacher for more information.
