Our class signed up for Sumdog today, an interactive math website aimed at grades 1-8. Its goal is to adapt questions to each student’s ability in order to help master Common Core State Standards. Each student in our room was given a username and password (taped into your child’s planner). Your child has a variety of games to pick from, and will be matched with other students across the country to compete in academic races. It is enjoyable, creative, and very helpful, especially to secure the multiplication facts necessary for success in fourth grade.
In addition to this, our class also decided to join a current challenge on Sumdog! We are competing nationwide to see which class can complete the most correct questions between today and next Thursday evening, at 8:00 PM! For each student that completes 1,000 questions between now and then, regardless of our class total, that student will be able to choose a mythical or legendary costume for their avatar! Oh boy, were the kiddos excited when they saw all the choices they had! So please, this week especially, allow your child some computer time to head to www.sumdog.com to log-in and practice their mathematics. The questions are geared to their current and future fourth grade skills, and are a big help to their academic success!
