ILX.com is a fun way for students to work on different types of math problems. If a student is struggling with a particular type of math problem, they can go to this cite and find the type of problem. Each time a child gets the answer wrong, there is an explanation on how to solve the problem. It is very user friendly!Spelling City
Spellingcity.com is a beneficial tool to help students practice their spelling words. A student can log onto this cite from a smart phone, ipad, ipod, or computer. If you are a busy family (like most families are), hand your child your electronic device while driving down the road, for example, and allow them to work on their spelling words for the week. They can replay the games over and over until they have mastered learning how to spell each spelling word for the week.
An easy way to be “in the know”, is to be signed up on my Remind101 texting service. It is an easy app that allows the teacher to text out information that will be important to you. This could be as simple as don’t forget tomorrow is the last day to have your child’s permission slip back to school or a major deal, such as, school is closed tomorrow due to snow. I do not send out reminders before 7:00 a.m. or after 7:00 p.m. I feel like this is your family time and it shouldn’t be interrupted. Therefore, you will not get reminders before or after those times. Also, this app does not give out your cell number at all (not even to me). If you would like to “be in the know”, please text (754) 600-4989 and type @jlewis. Your cell phone will immediately give you a message saying you are signed up.
