Helping Parents Intro

This page is dedicated to helping parents to help their children with school work they bring home. Here I will explain the ideas and give strategies that are being taught in the class and should be reinforced at home by the parent.  With that said, parents also need to understand and have the basic foundation of what their children is being taught in school. So, again this page will teach parents the foundations they need to help their children succeed.

Binary (Grades 2, 3, & 5) – Class Code for this course is  hgr7pfv  

Class start date is May 9, 20016 ending May 20th.

Class 1: May 9, 2016  – Meet in the computer lab 4-5pm for 1 hour instruction of how the Google Classroom works for students – How to add the class, how to get the worksheets, how to ask the teacher a private question and much more.

Computer Skills learned: Creativity and innovation: Students demonstrate creative thinking, construct knowledge, and develop innovative products and processes using technology. Students apply existing knowledge to generate new ideas, products, or processes and create original works. Students also build critical thinking, problem-solving, and decision-making. Students use critical thinking skills to plan and conduct research, manage projects, solve problems, and make informed decisions using appropriate digital tools and resources. Finally, students Technology operations and concepts Students demonstrate a sound understanding of technology concepts, systems, and operations. 

Math Skills: Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.  Mathematically proficient students start by explaining to themselves the meaning of a problem and looking for entry points to its solution. Mathematically proficient students check their answers to problems using a different method, and they continually ask themselves, “Does this make sense?” They can understand the approaches of others to solving complex problems and identify correspondences between different approaches.

Classes suggested and will be open soon.
