A Little Bit About Me

Dear Parents,

Due to the school closure, our class has an option to learn math online using Happy Numbers. It’s a web-based PK-5 math tool that moves children along at their own pace based on responses and provides helpful feedback after any errors. Although the exercises are all fun, interactive, and visually appealing, don’t be fooled! Your child will be gaining valuable practice in important math skills.

Follow these simple steps to use Happy Numbers at home:
1. Go to HappyNumbers.com
2. Click the “I’m a Student” button
3. Enter our class number (314923)
4. Select your child’s name from the class list
5. Enter your child’s password (I will text you your child’s password)

The first task for your child is to complete a 20-question Placement Test to determine their appropriate starting point in the Happy Numbers curriculum. It’s recommended to use Happy Numbers 15-20 minutes a day, up to 3-5 times a week
