WEEKLY UPDATE

Math

This week, we will be begin Math Topic 5 “Addition Facts to 20”. Concepts covered in this topic are double facts, double plus one facts, doubles plus two facts, and adding three numbers.
Student should still be practicing counting by 2’s, 5’s and 10’s as well as counting backwards from a starting number. A 100’s chart is a great tool for students to use while solving math problems. Please let me know if you need another chart or if you’d like some new activities to do with a 100’s chart. Also, I will be sending home a number line (0-20). Student will be using a number line to solve math facts. You can use this tool with your child for extra practice. :)
