Reflex Math

The Reflex Math program helps to develop fluency with your child's basic addition, subtraction, multiplication and division math facts.

 

IXL

This is a personalized online math & reading program that works as a tutor to cater to your child's current academic level.  It is an excellent tool for helping to close the gaps in your child's learning.

 

Reading

Research is revealing that regular reading each day, for as little as 6 minutes, helps to lower stress levels!  Reading with your child and asking questions to check their understanding can help them to appreciate balanced school-home support.

 

 

Thanks for who you are, and what you do :)

Digital Study
 
 
 
All of the students will be set up with iStation, IXL, and Reflex Math accounts.  iStation is a supplemental reading and math program that the state of Texas makes available to every student.  It is a fun and engaging way for students to achieve success in reading and math. Letters will be sent home with your students with directions to guide you through setting up their iStation accounts at home so that they can continue to work on their English Language Arts , Reading (ELAR) and Math skills.   Pearson Realize is the main math program that is available to every student.   It also provides progress monitoring, intervention and enrichment opportunities for your child.
HMH is the program that we use for Reading & Writing skills.  It also shares the same benefits as the Pearson program.   In addition to these programs, your child will also have opportunities to read Scholastic News articles, and to participate in targeted reading activities.  Storyworks also provides your child with a chance to develop strong comprehension skills, and to compare and contrast different reading genres,
The school district has generously subscribed to many learning programs that can be accessed through the apps on their Google Classlink page.
