What to work on over break

Math


  • Your children can get on connectED. This is a program for all students to explore and practice their math skills. Information was sent home a few weeks ago about how to access this.
  • Review addition and subtraction problems up to 20.
  • Make flashcards with your child to practice simple addition and subtraction problems! (Ex: 2+2, 3+2, 4-1, 4-2, etc)
  • Use the number chart we sent home in the packet to count by different intervals and identify numbers you call out.
  • Order numbers from smallest to largest or largest to smallest.
  • Fun math websites: www.aaamath.com or www.funbrain.com or www.abcya.com



Reading


  • Make sure you and your child continue reading over break! Try and squeeze 20 minutes in every day! This is very important. They have made great progress so far, so lets keep that going!
  • After you read a story ask your child questions like "who were the characters", "what did they do", "why did they do that", "where is the story set".
  • We have been learning how to read in 1st grade so take turns between you reading to them and them reading to you!


Ask your kids to speak French over break! Maybe they can talk with a sibling who also goes here, or they can teach you something!
