Does your child’s math homework ever stump you? Do you find yourself wondering how you passed math courses way back when if you can’t figureo out how to help your elementary child complete a math problem?
Can I tell you this? As a parent, I UNDERSTAND! Math is not what it used to be. It is much more complex for elementary learners now than it was when we were in school.
To help support parents and our math learners, Mr. Gort is video taping lessons and posting these on his MATH BLOG. Currently he has two videos posted: Tips for long division and tips for finding area and perimeter. Mr. Gort is a resource teacher at our school and teams with Mrs. Reifschneider, who is also a resource teacher.
If you have requests for certain math concepts that you would like him to video tape, please let him know by completing this survey. Our goal is to create a video library that you can access at any time to provide support to your child and also prevent you from ripping your hair out!
If you want to check out a video of Mr. Gort and his class of 4th grade bowlers, check out the PE Blog or Mr. Gort’s Class Blog. Mr. Gort’s class brought in the most food donations for the PE Cares program this year.
A very cool bowling game has also been posted to our sister school blog site, BLOGPALS. If you like computer games, check this one out!
If you have a child in one of the fourth grade classrooms, you have been well aware of the very heated contest for PE Cares. Students were asked to donate canned goods to stock our local food bank. As the competition drew to a close on Friday, parents were stopping by with CASES of food for the two classes tied for 1st place: Mr. Gort and Mrs. Jurewicz. The PE teachers were counting and recounting the items to ensure that the results were valid—we didn’t want to risk a re-count! Mr. Gort’s class won…but I heard whispers in the hall about Mrs. Jurewicz’s class coming in first in the next competition!
Thank you for everyone for contributing to this worthy cause. PE LINK
