In addition, you will learn an important skill that your child needs to practice at home. Your child can come with you and participate in a dance party or have fun competing in science and art activities. We will see you this week!

A Fun Way for Your Child to Practice Math
Have your child practice math at home by accessing the math program Dreambox. We purchased this program because not only does it allow your child to practice grade level skills it will also adapt to his or her individual needs. Dreambox is a great way for kids to get math practice in while having fun.
You can get to Dreambox from our website at https://woodleyhillses.fcps.edu/resources/student and having your child use their standard FCPS Username and Password. If they are unsure of their login, please contact your student’s teacher.
