Math

ENVISIONS MATH - This week we continue working on addition strategies found in Topic 2. Some math questions you may want to ask your child are:

* What are addends? (the numbers that are being added)

* What do you call the answer for an addition problem? (the sum)

* Can 3 digit numbers be added in any order? (yes, the sum will always be the same))

* What are some clue words that tell you to add to solve the problem? (in all, altogether)

This link will provide you with some fun practice games located on our class website: http://www.crsd.org/Page/31946


First in Math news - this fun math program arrived and your child received his/her login information which was placed with the others on the inside cover of their homework book.

This is a wonderful activity to help strengthen your child's math skills on different levels. Each Monday our new "Player of the Week" will be announced!
