Manatee Elementary believes that digital citizenship skills have become essential for students in the 21st century, especially in schools like ours that are using technology to transform learning. That's why we are committed to teaching our students how to think critically, behave safely, and participate responsibly. Manatee Elementary has just been approved as a Common Sense Digital Citizenship Certified School, an honor that recognizes our efforts in teaching digital literacy and citizenship to young people and engaging the entire school community in this important discussion. This recognition is provided by Common Sense Education, part of a national nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of kids and families by providing the trustworthy information, education, and independent voice they need to thrive in a world of media and technology.
We are one of the more than 100,000 schools across the country that use Common Sense Education'sgroundbreaking education resources. As a result, our students are better equipped to navigate the digital world and use devices for learning.
We would like to make you aware of a helpful math resource available to you and your child. Pearson SuccessNet offers the opportunity to access the Investigations Student Math Handbook (SMH) in English and/or Spanish. The material is presented at a high level of rigor as required by Florida’s Standards for Mathematics.
The Student Math Handbook is a tool that provides information for students and parents about important math words and ideas. Some of the papers that students work on at school and at home may include the homework symbol and a note on the top right that briefly explains what we have been doing in class and provides a page number from the SMH that can be referenced for more information. Additionally, the SMH includes directions to the math games we have played in the classroom.
