Summer Math Resources
All students currently in grades 2-4 have a subscription which is valid throughout the summer. Just as a reminder, you will need to use the following codes to log in:
NPS URL for PCs: https://play.dreambox.com/login/bbuv/nationalps
School code for iPads: bbuv/nationalps
Subscriptions to IXL have been purchased for students in Grades 3-6. This is another way for students to review and practice math skills. Log in information was sent home in May; they can access IXL using the same user name and password as Dreambox.
Many students already have accounts but it is easy to set up a free account for your child, if needed. This site helps students build their fact fluency and automatic recall. XtraMath.com
Summer Math Skills Sharpener
Parents should order the book that corresponds to the grade your child has just completed. So a rising third grader would order the second grade book. Books are available for students who have completed Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 6. Each book provides 30 lessons of mixed skills practice. The lessons are designed to be completed in 15-30 minutes, three times a week for ten weeks. The cost of the book is $19, plus shipping and handling fees.

This workbook includes less math practice, but it also includes reading incentives, writing prompts, and science activities in addition to the math review pages. It provides eight weeks of suggested activities and practice. As is the case in the other book, you order the grade your child is leaving. The cost of this book is $20 which includes the shipping costs. You can learn more on their website: http://thinkstretch.com/.
