Think Through Math: Summer Edition

The information below was provided by TEA.

Texas public school students in grades 3–8 will continue to have access all summer long to the adaptive content and support provided by Istation Reading and Think Through Math through Texas SUCCESS.

 

Just for educators – a Texas Summer SUCCESS Toolkit has been created to help get students ready for continued progress in math and reading over the summer. The Texas Summer SUCCESS Toolkit can be accessed at http://texassuccess.org/texas-summer-success-toolkits.

 

Here is a brief outline of what is included:

■ How to prepare students

■ How Istation Reading and Think Through Math can be used during summer school

■ Getting the word out to parents and the school community

■ How to get assistance

 

Important recommendations for educators:

 

Istation tips:

■ Ensure that all grade 3–8 students have accounts created.

■ Ensure that all students with accounts are accessed before school is out. (This is critical so the curriculum presented to students is at their level; regularly scheduled assessments will not be delivered over the summer.)

■ Ensure that all students have and know their usernames and passwords.

■ Print parent letters/log-in cards to send home.

 

Think Through Math tips:

■ Ensure that all grade 3–8 students have accounts created.

■ Ensure that all students have and know their usernames and passwords.

■ Print parent letters/start cards to send home.

■ Note: TTM will automatically assign a new content pathway to students if they finish the lessons in their currently assigned pathway over the summer.

■ Think Through Math will hold a summer contest called Texas Math – Everybody’s Doing It! Students statewide will be competing in different divisions to see which districts will be named the summer state champions. TTM will recognize the top districts and students in the state, with T-shirts, an awards luncheon, and other cool prizes. Information on the contest can be found by going to www.ttmtexas.com/texasmath.
