Infinite Campus is a wonderful website in which you can monitor your child's progress throughout each grading period. At least once a week I update my grade book. This allows you to see what grade your child earned on any assignment and if they are missing any assignments. If you do not have your password and user name please see Sherri Kissick for that information. ?

MAP testing is used as an instrument to measure the strengths and weaknesses of each student. This link provides several games for students to work on, and is broken down by their MAP scores.
A wonderful way to increase basic math fact fluency, as well as supplement the newly implemented Math Automaticity program we do as a bell ringer every day at the beginning of class is to visit XtraMath. Students already have a login name and pin number and are very familiar with the site, as we work on it in the Media Center, during Math RIT Bands, as a Math Station Rotation, free time, and after school while waiting to be dismissed. As students master each operation (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division), answering every problem correctly in 3 seconds or less, they are awarded a certification of completion which then goes into their individual data folders. When students complete the initial program, they are then entered into a second and third program which requires them to complete the same problems in less time (2 seconds and 1.5 seconds), therefore increasing Math fact fluency. XtraMath is a WONDERFUL supplemental program to actual class work, it takes less than 10, normally about 5-7 minutes a day to complete and best of all, it's FREE!
Moby Math is a new math program that we have begun using in 5th grade this year. Moby Math works by providing differentiated instruction for each student based upon his or her needs and relies on the "Find, fix, Monitor" philosophy. Moby Math begins by administering a benchmark diagnostic placement test which reveals, or "finds", missing math skills. Based upon these results, lessons that are built upon the new KCAS Kentucky Common Core Standards are assigned, to help "fix" the problem areas, along with fact mastery assignments to increase fact fluency. The program's systematic review keeps students fluent in all math concepts. Finally, student progress is closely monitored to show the exact progress students area making.
