Kids Reading Across Rhode Island 2018: 

The First Rule of Punk

2018 Pura Belpré Award Honor Book and a 2018 Rhode Island Latino Books Month selection!

There are no shortcuts to surviving your first day at a new school–you can’t fix it with duct tape like you would your Chuck Taylors. On Day One, twelve-year-old Malu (Maria Luisa, if you want to annoy her) inadvertently upsets Posada Middle School’s queen bee, violates the school’s dress code with her punk rock look, and disappoints her college-professor mom in the process. Her dad, who now lives a thousand miles away, says things will get better as long as she remembers the first rule of punk: be yourself.

The real Malu loves rock music, skateboarding, zines, and Soyrizo (hold the cilantro, please). And when she assembles a group of like-minded misfits at school and starts a band, Malu finally begins to feel at home. She’ll do anything to preserve this, which includes standing up to an anti-punk school administration to fight for her right to express herself!

Bristol Warren Regional School District's 2018 Summer Math - Coming Soon!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As you prepare for your summer schedule please take a few minutes to plan time for math and reading activities. Research is clear, students can experience “summer learning loss” that can be equivalent to three months of mathematics learning if they don’t practice throughout the summer.

 

Students can practice their math skills daily through the online i-Ready Math program.  Students entering grades 1-6, can sign into i-Ready using their current login directions from school (also located in the summer electronic folder linked below) and complete lessons and earn coins while practicing math skills.  Parents are encouraged to monitor and support students with the iReady lessons. The recommendation for i-Ready use is 45 minutes per week and the program is available through August 14 (with the exception of July 19-23 when the site is being updated).

 

In addition to iReady, Bristol Warren students can complete the the Greg Tang Math Challenge or Newmark Summer Math Practice.  Both are located at http://bit.ly/BWRSDSummerMath The Newmark Summer Math Practice and Greg Tang Math Challenge are due September 21.  


The problems within these resources were selected to reinforce key concepts for each grade level and the skills that students have learned during the school year, to help avoid “summer learning loss”.  You can also incorporate math into your daily activities such cooking, grocery shopping, or riding in the car. Guess my Number is a great way to reinforce number concepts:

First, think of a number; 98 as an example.  Give clues to help your child guess the number, such as “the number I’m thinking of is an even number that is less than one hundred but more than 50”.   Adjust your clues with each guess until he/she guesses the right number.

 

Staying Fresh with Fluency Skills are also always important! Here are the expectations by grade level:

Entering Grade 2:

 

Add & Subtract within 10

Entering Grade 3: Add & Subtract within 20

Entering Grade 4 & 5: Multiply & Divide within 120

 

As you know, learning doesn’t stop in the summer.  Thank you for being our partners in the education of your child.  It all adds up!
