This year, 2017-18, for Math we are using the Go Math series which is the same series that your student has been using K through 5.

The easiest way to get in touch with me is to email me at lking@northwood.k12.nh.us I check this address throughout the day and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Math Class Time

Each day, each class students arrive with the necessary materials:

- math binder
- 2 pencils with erasers
- agenda book
- positive attitude

Each day------ Often the first activity is the Daily Question which is on the board. Each student answers the question on a piece of scrap paper and hands it to me. I then model the correct process and answer and read aloud the names of those students who answered it correctly.
- Daily Practice is a daily activity that is completed by all students. It is 6 math computation questions, one of each operation, a geometry and a miscellaneous operation, maybe fractions or decimals. It is graded and recorded as a classwork grade.
- Each week the students will receive a X-word puzzle and Problem of the Week, POW on the first day of the week and they are due on the last day of each week. These are graded as Homework grades. I don't hand them out on short weeks.
- Puzzlers are assigned throughout the week and are used to create deeper thinking opportunities. Often these are done in class, sometimes for home work.
- Core Instruction takes place each day followed by practice.
