Supplemental Math Portal: Clever

One way to keep up on Math skills and concepts during the school closure is through our online iReady Math lessons. Students have been taught how to access the Clever website portal for the iReady online lesson, math fact fluency apps, typing.com app, and many other resources.

As always, playing board games, math fact cards or workbooks from stores are great resources for keeping the mind active.

I will be checking my email during the closure and break, so please contact me if you have questions.
