 Renaissance Math Facts  

Did you know your child can practice their math facts using the Renaissance link on the Porter Lakes Elementary page?  It is located under the Harmony link.  Click on the 3rd box that says Math Facts.  It begins with addition, subtraction, mixed addition and subtraction facts.  They can practice their math facts at home.  It is recommended that they practice 3 times a week for 10 minutes.  Their username and password is in their yellow folder and assignment book.

username is 28lastfir   (four of last name   three of first name)

password is their 9 digit lunch code.

My website links list some educational links that your child can use to practice skills taught in the classroom.  Math, Reading, and Social Studies textbook links are also found here.  Your child be be getting their username and passwords for these 3 textbooks shortly.  Science is not online.  

 

Spelling

When we have school Monday - Friday, our Spelling tests are as follows. Students will type their spelling words using spelling city.  If they miss any words on their pretest, they will highlight the word that was spelled wrong. If your child got a 100%, they do NOT have to take the regular test.  

Spelling pretests are on Tuesday's.  

Spelling tests are on Thursday's.

If it is not an ordinary week please check assignment book for changes.

I have purchased Spelling city premium for my students.  Your child will have their username and password in their assignment book and yellow folder.  The premium version allows your child to play more games using their spelling words.
