Math Matters Newsletter

As we look at ways to end the school year strong, this month’s issue of Math Matters is ready for your reading pleasure. We take a deeper look at the importance of developing number sense over memorization skills, provide some awesome activities in problem-based learning, and explore the math app Prodigy.

We hope these resources will help keep the motivation for
learning in math going as the year draws to a close.

Mental Health Month
May is Mental Health Month, and it comes at a time when we are facing unprecedented challenges and stresses. While the concept of virtual counseling services was previously new and novel, accessing counseling services virtually is now necessary. Thankfully, there is a wealth of mental health resources available online including so many great apps.

Concerned about anxiety or depression? Does your child need help to calm down or falling asleep? Or maybe they just need some extra peer support. There's an app for all of that!
