What's Happening This Week:
Please remember to email the front office and me if there are changes to your child's pick up plans. Emailing by 2:30pm works the best. You can reach the front office at email@example.com

Math Strategies we are using in class for addition:
Add in any order (3+4=7 4+3=7)
Circle the number that is more, and count on (8 +2=10)
Touch point math (circle the larger number, and count on the lower number with dots. See Math insert in child's folder)
Doubles (3+3=6, 5+5=10,etc.)
Doubles Plus One, and Doubles Minus One
(4+4=8....so 4+5=9 and 4+4=8, so 4+3=7)
Using a 10 frame to add
Adding three numbers - look for a double or make ten, then add on
Math Strategies we are using for Subtraction
Use a 10 frame to write a tens fact, and subtract
Make a group of 10 to subtract
Use a number line to count back
