This year we will be using the math series GO Math! to learn about numbers, patterns, place value, addition, subtraction, fact families, fractions, graphing, geometry, money, and telling time. This series is designed to meet the objectives and intent of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. I also will incorporate literature, music and games to help make learning math fun. Students will have an opportunity to be challenged by learning multiplication and division facts towards the end of the year.
Students will practice basic addition and subtraction facts daily to build fact fluency. Please have your child work on addition and subtraction facts nightly to increase their speed. It is helpful if you can also look over your child’s work that was completed in class. If you are seeing consistent mistakes, sit down and help your child review that concept. Your child will have a weekly math assignment that they will need to complete and return by that Friday. Look for this to come home on Mondays or Tuesdays.
