Everybody is a genius.  But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid. ---Albert Einstein

Welcome to Title I Math!  My name is Dr. Bridget Carter and I have been an educator in Prince William County Schools for 33 years.  Thirty of those years have been in River Oaks Elementary.   I have had the pleasure of working with some very Dynamic students this year.  I am so impressed and pleased with how much growth each and everyone of them has made this year. 

One of the most important things that we all need to do is to focus on being safe, staying healthy, and using this time to appreciate all those that we love and care deeply for.  My goal is to provide students, parents, and teachers with resources that will help them as we are learning virtually.  These resources may be found on the left-hand side under Useful Links and Files and Documents.  On the River Oaks page, you will also find more computer resources under Student Websites.  You may also be able to access through CLEVER. 


Clever is an easy way for you to gain access to many useful sites such as DreamBox, IXL, BrainPop, BrainPop Jr., and BrainPop Espanol.  Students will log in using their username and password.  If you have problems, please contact your child’s teacher and they will send you the information. 


Origo at Home

Origo is our new textbook series that we have started to use this year.  As a result of COVID -19, Origo developed Origo at Home which provides an intentional daily routine organized to introduce, reinforce, and expand math concepts and skills students typically learn at this point in the school year.

The lesson plan format will provide you with everything needed for instruction and is written so that parents can implement it on their own.  These are not full math lessons.  Just click on the link and choose United States, grade level, and week.  You will find digital books to read and discuss along with videos that explain mathematical concepts to watch and discuss.  Games and activities are included that allow opportunities to talk about math in the context of our own homes and lives.  This is a great way to apply math learning outside of school. 

Student resources are also available in Spanish.  Everything can be accessed on any electronic device that has an internet connection including phones.
