Sweet Times in First Grade

For the Week of: April 11-15

Subitizing was the Math word of the day!

On Tuesday Mr. Nyswander visited our classroom to teach us a fun new math word: Subitizing! He taught us that subitizing is the ability to quickly identify the number of items in a small set without counting. Research shows a strong relationship between subitizing skills and math achievement. The students did a great job with this skill.

Keep Them Reading!

Don’t forget about our Raz-kids online reading program! This program is great for boosting fluency and comprehension. The students will have their reading skills assessed with DIBELS for their end of the year progress results in May. It would be a good idea to keep your child reading as much as possible over Spring Break to keep their skills fresh.
