Summer Sports Camp

Please see the link below regarding Prosper Summer Sports Camps.


Karate Belt Math ORANGE BELT

We have been working on the "Bridge to Ten” strategy. I am attaching the Orange Belt flash cards we are using in class. Encourage them to explain how they used the strategy. For example, 9+7= , 9+7 is the same as 10+6 which equals 16.

I hope you enjoy helping your student prepare for this at home. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. Please use the attached documents to work on these concepts at home.
