Working From Home with the Redbird Mathematics
We are excited to inform you that your child currently has a student account for Redbird Mathematics. This account was obtained through their academic institution. Redbird Mathematics is a K-7 web based mathematics curricula developed at Stanford University. Besides the school environment students may also elect to use Redbird Math in alternative locations. In fact, Redbird Math can be accessed from basically anywhere with an internet connection and a modern device. We hope your child enjoys using Redbird Math.
The Redbird Mathematics website where your child will login is listed below.
Username: Your child's 10 digit FC ID/lunch number
Password: Birthdate in 8-digit format (Ex. 01252008)
Each student is on their own learning "pathway" so it is very important to allow your child to work on Redbird independently. If assistance is provided, his/her pathway would change and the content could cause frustration. Thank you for agreeing to maximize your child's learning experience without assisting them.
The #BeKind movement is in full swing at Birmingham Falls. We encourage students to spread the #BeKind message throughout our community and in your home. Whenever your child demonstrates an act of kindness in their community or home, record it on the Kindness Tracker form linked below. When your child reaches 25 acts of kindness, he or she may return the form to their teacher to earn a reward. BE PART OF THE #BeKind WALL OF FAME - Submit a picture showing one of your child's acts of kindness in motion, and we will display it on our #BeKind wall of fame. Help us cover this wall by the end of the year!! Remember - #BeKind everywhere you go!
