Math Homework

Parents,  there will not be any math homework this week.  Please spend some time each night this week reviewing previous homework (which should remain in binders).  We are still working on place value, skip counting, number sequences, addition, 10 more/10 less, 1 more/1 less and even/odd number recognition.  Keep working hard!

What We're Learning in MATH

We have been working on becoming more fluent with basic addition facts for the past couple of weeks.  We've also been learning strategies like "+1"  "+0", doubles facts, near doubles, etc. to help speed up our addition.  Along with addition, we've been sharpening our skills with place value and recognition of even / odd numbers.  We're soon to be moving on to 2 digit addition, more place value, ordering numbers, comparing numbers and expanded form.  Look out 2nd grade math standards!!!  Here we come!!
