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.  This is my second year teaching third grade math and science at Wildwood Elementary.  
 
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 fourteen years, and we have two boys.  My oldest son, Emerson, attends Oakcrest Intermediate and is in fifth grade.  Langston is my youngest son, and he is in third grade at Wildwood.   We love all things sports and spending time outdoors.  
 
I'm looking forward to a fantastic year with each and every student.  Third grade is such an exciting year!

Field Trip Form and Multiplication Facts

Parents!  Please return the field trip permission form tomorrow!  We will be seeing the Nutcracker ballet at Tomball High School on Friday, December 7!
 
Also, please continue practicing multiplication facts for 5-10 minutes a day!  It is so important for your child to memorize their multiplication facts!  This will benefit them for the rest of third grade!  
 
Thanks for your support!

Multiplication Facts!

Parents!  Please remember to help your child practice their multiplication facts for 5-10 minutes daily!  (not just the fact fluency check that we are practicing for the week)  Please practice all facts through 10!  This will help your child be successful in our current unit on multiplication and in our next unit over division.  Learning these facts will contribute to their success for not only the rest of third grade, but for fourth grade as well!  As always, thank you for your support!

Enchanted Forest Literacy Night!

Come join us at the WES Enchanted Forest Literacy Night on Thursday, October 18th from 5-7pm.
You're not going to want to miss our Literacy Night this year! The book fair will be open and there will be multiple activities for families set up throughout the whole school. 
 
It will be an enchanted night with opportunities to read with fairies, read in an enchanted forest, get your face painted, make magic wands, and take pictures with Clifford the Big Red Dog and other enchanted characters. Also there will be some opportunities to win posters, books, and gift certificates from the book fair.

Don't forget to come dressed as your favorite fairy tale or Enchanted Forest character! 
 
We will see you there!

Great Math Website!

Students have been enjoying iknowit.com during math work stations.  This is a great site that covers nearly all of our third grade standards.  They can use this site to review and practice!  Just choose third grade when visiting the website!

Welcome Back!

We had a wonderful first day in third grade!  I enjoyed getting to know each and every student in both of my classes!  Please remember that your child can bring a nutritious snack and a water bottle each day.  The snack should be something that is healthy and doesn't cause a mess.  (pretzels, goldfish, etc.)  Water bottles should close with a pop top to prevent spills.  :)

Welcome Back, Wildcats!

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!
