# PROBLEM SOLVERS

### First graders solving problems one at a time!

## Week of: January 19, 2015

## JUST THE FACTS!

This week we will begin working on subtracting 6 and 5 facts. Please practice these facts with your first grade mathematician each afternoon or evening. They will need to complete 25 facts in 2 1/2 minutes for their assessment next Thursday, January 29.

Remember to keep practicing all previous learned facts: addition facts 0+0 through 9+9 and subtracting 0, 1, 2, 3, and 4 facts. There will be a subtraction review assessment on Friday, January 30. Students will need to complete
