Number Sense November is coming!!
Many of you are familiar with March is Reading month, well, this year we are adding Number Sense November! Be on the lookout for number lines, activity calendars, problems of the day, and student prizes!
Some simple ways to incorporate math into your child's home life are:
- Have your child help with measuring ingredients for meals.
- Fraction practice with pizza, cookies, cakes. How many halves are in a whole? Quarters? Thirds?
- Playing math games, such as Yahtzee.
- Counting coins.
Number Sense November kicks off next Friday! Let's make November count!
