GO Math Online

We received a few letters regarding difficulties logging on to GO Math.  This is a very helpful tool and we will look closely to see what is causing trouble logging in at home.  Please be patient and we will send a follow up letter shortly.

We hope to see you on Tuesday for first grade visitation day!

Shared Reading

Did you hear?  We learned how to read a Level K book this week during shared reading!
It is so much fun to read high levels.  It's important that we practice our letter sounds, word recognition, and fluency so that we can get to higher levels.

Right now, Level E is on-grade level.  If your child is reading below this level, please make sure you are working with them EVERY day, they need your support, encouragement, and motivation, and can't do it alone.  First grade is a big year for growth, let's put in the work!

GO Math

Have you been having trouble with the GO Math homework?

Do you notice your child is having difficulty understanding specific concepts?

Check your child's PS 89 folder on Monday for log in information.  We will be assigning work online.  It can be accessed by computer or cell phone.  If you do not have access to the internet, please visit the library.
