New Prodigy accounts will be set up for the grade 6 students. Their login information will be in the front of their agenda. A letter also went home with this. Prodigy will help them practice math skills at their level. Mrs. Davies will sometimes program the game to ask more questions related to what we are learning. This is a great, fun way to practice math.
