Grade 2/3 with Mrs.Rogers

Learning Excellence



This year I have a “no homework” policy based on researched best practices for elementary grades. While I want to encourage you to read with your child every night and practice their skills using online education tools or activities, I also value the importance of play. Evenings (especially during the week) should be used to get outdoors and for time spent with family. With that said, the only time your child will come home with “homework” is if they have wasted the class time allotted to them to do their work. If they use class time inappropriately I will send the assignment home to be completed and returned the following day. If work is sent home, please discuss with your child the need to do school work while at school so it does not impede on family or play time, and also ensure that they make time to complete their assignment. Thank you for helping support your child’s learning!

Prodigy Math

Prodigy Math to students is a fun tech game where their avatars can battle other class members (through answering questions-not violent), they can travel worlds and earn products in the game by answering math questions. As a teacher, it is an awesome assessment tool. I assign all of the questions to students based on specific outcomes we are working on. I receive data for which questions/skills students answer correctly or incorrectly, including how long it takes them to answer each question. I use this data to inform my teaching. Parents I ask that if your child is playing Prodigy at home that they answer the questions independently. This needs to be authentic assessment of their knowledge and skills. You or an older sibling can help read the question if they need clarification for what it’s asking of them, but please do not give them the answers! Thank you for your help 😀
