Cooler Weather is Here

The cooler weather has arrived. Please make sure your child is dressing appropriately for the weather. We will go outside whenever possible so please send jackets if needed.


We will be working on place value for the next couple of weeks. We will be focusing on the following:

  • making tens and ones,
  • reading and writing numbers in word form
  • using symbols to compare numbers (<, >, =)
  • counting to 100 knowing what comes before and after a number
  • 10 more and 10 less
  • even and odd numbers
  • using data from a chart to solve problems

Don't forget xtramath.org is a great resource for practicing math facts.

Focus that can still be reviewed:

  • time to 5 minutes
  • counting by 5's forwards and backwards
  • adding facts up to 20
