Meet Mrs. Straley

Welcome to third grade at Wildwood Elementary!  My name is Misty Straley.  I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a degree in Interdisciplinary Academic Studies.  I'm certified to teach grades EC- eighth grade.  I also hold gifted and talented as well as ESL certifications.  I taught second grade in Tomball ISD at Willow Creek Elementary.  At Rosehill Elementary, I taught second grade and served as the campus Gifted and Talented Instructional Specialist.  I'm so excited to be returning to Tomball ISD after taking some time off to be with my boys!
 
I grew up in Tomball and graduated from Tomball High School.  I LOVE this community and this school district!  I've been married to my husband Brian for thirteen years.  We have two boys that attend Wildwood Elementary.  Langston is in second grade, and Emerson is in fourth grade!  We love to spend time as a family outdoors!  
 
I'm looking forward to a fantastic year with each and every student.  Third grade is an exciting year!

Imagine Math

Think Through Math

 

Dear Parent or Guardian,

 

Your student has been enrolled in Imagine Math, an online math tutoring program that adapts to your student’s level of math fluency and provides live, state-credentialed teacher support when students need assistance. Imagine Math is proven to increase math proficiency when students use it for at least 90 minutes each week.

 

Imagine Math Live Teacher Support

Live teacher support within Imagine Math provides direct, targeted instruction when students need assistance. Our certified teachers provide support to students by tailoring their instruction to the student’s level of math fluency. Students can receive live teacher support though text chat, verbal instruction, or virtual whiteboard sessions. Students also have access to Spanish-speaking teachers as needed.

 

Using Imagine Math at Home

Because Imagine Math is an online program, your student can access it from any computer with Internet access—whether at school, home, or the library. Students can log in to Imagine Math at math.imaginelearning.com. Students can access Imagine Math from home on computers or tablets, including PCs, Macs, iPads, Chromebooks, Android tablets, and Windows tablets (no smartphones). For the best experience in Imagine Math, students should use headphones or speakers to hear voice prompts or use live teacher support. For a complete list of system requirements, visit support.imaginelearning.com/mathtech.

Note: Only students officially enrolled in Imagine Math should log in to their Imagine Math account from home.

 

Recommendations for Parents

Your student’s success in Imagine Math can be heavily influenced by consistent parental involvement. These recommendations will help you and your student get the most of out of Imagine Math:

  • Encourage your student’s participation in Imagine Math. The more your student engages with Imagine

Math, the more their math fluency will increase.

  • Encourage your student to be thoughtful as they work through math problems. Imagine Math provides constant support and immediate feedback on student performance, especially in those subject areas where students tend to struggle.
  • Create an Imagine Math parent portal account. Review your student’s Imagine Math dashboard and discuss the lessons they’ve completed or passed, the points they’ve earned, or any motivational challenges they are working towards.

Wednesday-Friday

Dear Parents,
 
I will be off campus for the next three days attending a professional development session along with another third grade math/science teacher from Wildwood.  I am excited about this opportunity, but I will miss being in the classroom of course!  The same substitute will be in our classroom for all three days.  I will check in each morning and afternoon to ensure that things are running smoothly and that the substitute is all set.  
 
Have a great evening!
Mrs. Straley

Homework

Parents,
 
I would like to remind you that homework went home today, September 20, 2017.  Please remember that you have one full week to complete math homework which includes one math fact menu item and one math workbook page.  Please allow for additional math fact practice if you feel that your child needs more practice.  It's not too early to start memorizing multiplication facts!  We took our first fact fluency quiz today!   
 
I would also like to request that you send a set of headphones with your child in a Ziploc bag labeled with their name!
 
Thanks so much!  

Parent Orientation and Homework

Parents,
 
Parent Orientation has been rescheduled for September 28, 2017 from 5:15-6:30!  Mrs. Walter and I would love to see you there!
 
Please remember that math homework is due on Wednesday.  Please turn in any evidence of work from the Math Fact Menu and the TEKS review 1-1 and 1-2.
 
Thanks!!

Math Homework and Science Safety Contract

On Wednesday, you will see a Math Fact Fluency Menu in the blue Take Home folder.  This menu will stay in the folder weekly.  Math homework will be assigned on Wednesday of each week.  The students will have from Wednesday to the following Wednesday each week to complete their math homework.  They will complete three items from the menu.  In addition to the Fact Fluency menu, other math practice will be assigned.  Again, homework will be assigned on Wednesday and will be due the following Wednesday.  If you have any questions, please let me know!
 
I'm sending home a Science Safety contract in the Wednesday folder.  Please sign and return this as soon as possible.  Thank you!
 
 

Welcome Back!

I'm looking forward to seeing my students tomorrow!  I've missed everyone so much!  Please return your math and science interactive notebooks.  If you didn't get a chance to complete the covers, don't worry.  I also had a few students forget to return their blue Wednesday folders.  Please bring those as well.
 
Parent orientation will be rescheduled.  I will post the date as soon as it becomes available!  
 
I can't wait for tomorrow!  :)
