In writing we will begin to learn about writing to inform.

Math

ENVISIONS MATH

We will begin topic 5 on MONEY this week. Money can be challenging. It is most helpful to practice counting money in everyday experiences, such as paying for something at a store.

** If your child has any difficulty with the homework, it would be helpful to go on the Pearson website for review of the lesson. Go to the upper right “TO DO” and they can go through the exact lesson from the day. As always, First in Math provides great practice with basic addition and subtraction facts. As our concepts will continue to become more challenging, this practice at home is especially helpful.


FIRST IN MATH

Keep up with the great work on the First in Math website. This is a wonderful activity to help strengthen your child's math skills on different levels.
