Prodigy

Students are encouraged to continue using Prodigy. The program allows me to set specific questions related to areas of our Grade 2 curriculum that students need further practice on.  I get a report on their progress and can increase the difficulty as they progress  through the questions.

I have created an assignment of adding and subtracting questions with regrouping. I have also assigned questions of finding a missing number. The assignment is active until March 9th.  I would appreciate all students completing the assignment before the 9th.

Thank-you
Mrs. K
