Walking in a Winter Wonderland!

Math

Practice, practice, practice! Need math flash cards for home? Just ask! Practice these flash cards, or better yet, make your own with your child and quiz each other daily. Students who can fluently add, subtract, multiply, and divide (numbers less than 100) are more successful in math! The less brain work it takes to solve simple facts then the MORE brain power they can use to work on more challenging problems!
