On this website, I will include our math daily lesson, as well as science and social studies weekly lessons.

I look forward to inspiring and growing your child in math, social studies,and science  throughout this year!! Please remember to join Remind 101!!  

    We will take a  mad minute test weekly.  They will begin with 3 minutes and will decrease each week. This is a G1 weekly grade. Students will have homework EVERY night on the lesson that was taught that day. Students will take a quiz the following day on that lesson after homework is gone over. I follow this same pattern everyday.  Your child's Pearson account is as follows: user name is his/her MSIS number and the password is password1.
