Conversation Starters

As a way to foster conversations with your child about what we are learning, please ask him/her the following:


Name some famous Americans. What makes them famous?

Magical Mathematicians

Please read the following problem with your child and help him solve the problem.


Jaylynn has 6 red apples. Keion has 4 green apples. How many apples do they have all together? How many more red apples are there than green apples?


(If your child is ready, perhaps challenge him with higher numbers, perhaps numbers that would equal 15-20.)


Your child can earn a special reward by drawing a picture to illustrate the math problem above. Please return the math work on Monday.

Reading in Action

Read a story to your child. Ask your child...


What kind of connection did you have with the story or a character in the story?
