Homework is sent during the week only if they do not finish their work in class.
Please make sure that your students are coming to school with an expo marker and a pencil. I have given them to each student, and they are being lost. Thank you!
What are we learning?
Welcome to Term 1!
The Students will be doing Math Practice Posters the 1st two weeks in groups during class time. We will begin Place Value then we will be moving on to 3 - 4 digit addition and subtraction. They will only have homework if they do not finish their work in class or we run out of time. I do not give homework on Fridays or Holidays.
Commutative Property of Addition
(order of numbers does not change the sum)
Associative Property of Addition
(way numbers are grouped does not change the sum; this one has the parentheses)
(symbols showing grouping)
Identity Property of Addition
sum of any number and 0 is the number)
(rename a number with a place value)
(number close to the exact number)
A great way for your child to build their math skills is by practicing flash cards a few times a week. Flash cards can easily be made on paper, with index cards, or are available premade at the dollar store.
Simple addition and subtraction are the fundamental skills in which the rest of our learning in math will be built upon.
Please have your CHILD MEMORIZE THEIR MULTIPLICATION FACTS over our breaks! This will help them move on to division.
