Make Sure to get your Math e-book set up!!!

Sixth grade will be using CPM math this year.  A nice feature is that every student has access to the e-book.  Not only does the e-book allow you to pull up the text book online, but it also has several interactive tools that can be used at home and that we will use in the classroom.  There are about a dozen students that have not done this yet!  Please set up your e-book as soon as possible  by following the instructions below:

Each student will need to create a username and password for their e-book for CPM.  In order to do this, please do the following:

  1. Go to
  2. Click on “enroll”
  3. Enter the PIN “A8RTC”
  4. Have the username be your students’ first name and last name, all lowercase, together without a space (i.e.  John Smith’s username would be johnsmith)
  5. Enter a valid e-mail address
  6. Have the password be “Highmark1″

“Spellcabulary” Test Tomorrow!!!

Don’t forget to study your spelling/vocabulary words for the test tomorrow!!  Remember, for each word you will need to be able to:

  • Spell it
  • Identify the part of speech (verb, noun, adjective, etc…..)
  • Define it in your own words
  • Use it in a sentence

The words can be found under the Language Arts tab on the homepage of my blog if you want to review them there.
