I will put the Kahoot games we play in class on this page so that you can play them at home! Remember, to play Kahoot at home you have to use 2 devices.
Here is the link you need to go to so that you can get the four colored boxes to answer the questions. You will need to enter the game pin on this site. https://kahoot.it/#/
Here are the links to the games with the questions. (Click on the title of the game)
Please have your child practice addition and subtraction facts at home several nights a week...15 minutes - 3-4 nights. This will help make them stronger and more confident in their basic math skills and prepare them for multiplication. Xtra math is a good online game for them to play. The link is listed below. Thank you!
I will put links to different websites and documents that we use throughout the year. Here are a couple to get us started! You can click on each title.
