Our math practice site, DREAMBOX, can be accessed on a computer here: Dreambox
On a phone or tablet, download the dreambox app and input a one time school code. Our school code is: 44fc/stbs. This will bring your child to the login screen.
Students were given their login information and passwords in school. These activities, if done at home, need to be completed by the student without help from adults. This is important to the overall progress that your child will achieve, as the program levels itself continually. If your child is struggling with a concept, the program will move to a lower level activity until the child shows mastery. Likewise, if a child moves quickly through a skill, a more challenging concept will be introduced. Results will be skewed if a child is given assistance, so please allow your child to work on his/her own to achieve the maximum benefits. No pencil/paper.
Reminder: Our Reading and Math books are available online through your child’s Pearson account. Here’s the link.
Students have been given login info at school, and a copy of this was sent home. Please log in once, and save the login info. This way, if your child is home sick, or prefers not to carry those books home, they will have immediate access from home.
The Spelling City link below has the entire year’s spelling and vocabulary words, and does not require students to log in.
