"I Excel in Math"

October's Estimation Jar was filled with candy corn taffy. After estimates were made, students drew tally marks for the given data. Tally marks is a review skill for fifth graders, so I tried to add some fun with the estimation jar.  

Brian was the winner of 53 pieces of taffy. He is now a big fan of tally marks!

NMS has added IXL for our students. IXL is a math software program. Since IXL is web-based, your student can access the program from your home computer. Whether your child needs some extra practice, or just something fun and educational to work on, IXL can help them improve their math skills. I hope you will take advantage of this wonderful educational opportunity for your child.

Becoming good at math takes a significant amount of practice. When practice is fun, students are more likely to spend the time mastering necessary math skills.
