Chapter 5: Addition
Rules of Number Sentences
As children first learn to read and write addition number sentences, it is important that they know a few basic rules about addition sentences:
1. It must have a plus sign (+)
2. It must have an equal sign (=)
3. The number (or numbers) on one side of the equal sign must have the same value as the number (or numbers) on the other side of the equal sign.
Composting and Decomposing Numbers
An important aspect of learning about numbers to 10 is to understand how to compose and decompose these numbers. Composing and decomposing a number are similar -- and often misunderstood -- mathematical concepts. "Composing" a number means to put two numbers together to make a number with the same value. "Decomposing" a number means to take a number apart to make two numbers with the same total value.
- What are Rocks?
- What is Water?
Students will each have a "Lenten Good Deeds Chart". Each time Mrs. Ivette or myself witness a student doing a good deed, they are able to fill in their worksheet. Our goal is to have our stain glass windows full by the end of Lent.
