Please have your child go on xtramath.org daily to practice their math facts. You can write the time down on their logs that they are practicing on this website. If they finish a session, they can always log off and log back on in the same day. They will need either your email address that you used to sign them up or my email address which is lcoverick@summithill.org
They will type their first name.
Then they will need their pin number.
Every time a student passes an operation they will receive a certificate and a rubber ducky as their reward!
