For reading and vocabulary we like to use http://www.starfall.com

For math we use Dreambox.  Each student has their own login that will keep up with their progress and give them activities that are at their level.  https://play.dreambox.com/login/wd2b/dunbarp

PBS Kids has great materials  in different subject areas. http://pbskids.org



We have weekly spelling tests and word wall tests on Fridays.  Lists will be sent home on Monday of each week.  They will be listed on the weekly newsletter as well.  Math homework is sent home on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  This must be completed and returned no later than Friday. Reading must be done every night.  Please make sure to sign their purple reading folder each evening.
