What is Xtra Math?
Every student in grades 1-5 are assigned to do Xtra Math. Xtra Math is a math program to help your kids get at their math facts. There are 4 levels of Xtra Math: Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, and Division. Every time they pass each level they get a small card and get put on a wall of fame. Every time you get put on the wall fame Mrs. Gottschalk reads their name for the whole school to hear. If you kid wants to do it at home, email your kid's teacher for their pin. Then just go on to Xtramath.com, enter the pin and you can math anytime you want. Just make sure you have a device to do it on.
Here are some pictures of the Xtra Math Wall of Fame-
