Usernames, Passwords and Class Code will be sent home. Zearn lessons will be completed as homework for extra credit. The lessons for students to complete in Zearn match up to the number of days needed to complete each Module in Eureka Math. The Module students are working on are already pre-assigned by your classroom teacher.
Students will work through four components of a skill for each lesson of Zearn:
- Number Gym - An individually adaptive fluency activity that helps students foundational number sense. These activities help to reinforce previous learned concepts or address any areas of unfinished learning.
- Lesson Aligned Fluency – Activities to support grade level learning by reviewing previously learned concepts and preparing for upcoming content.
- Guided Practice – Opportunity to learn and practice new concepts. Visualizations using high quality digital manipulatives. Watch video to understand the new concept being instructed. However, no printable materials are necessary for students in this section.
- Tower of Power – Demonstrates student new learning where they work through multiple stages of independent practice. Students must solve problems that become more complex and less scaffolded as they progress. All questions need to be answered correctly to complete the Tower of Power and unlock the next lesson in the mission. If they get an answer wrong, they get personalized impeded remediation that provides the support needed. It breaks down the problem into smaller steps with more supportive manipulatives.
Please note that when the Zearn lesson asks for you to print out materials, you are not required to do so. Your child can simply watch this section of the lesson.
