Strategy Testing and Understanding Place Value!
This week we are continuing our district adopted Envision math program. This week we are doing our final review assessments for addition and subtraction. We will be doing a variety of tests to see how accurate and efficient your child is when using addition and subtraction strategies with single digit numbers and answers up to 20.
Later in the week, your child will begin to learn about place value from topic five. Topic five focuses on strategies to help students understand the value of numbers. This week we are making base 10 models of numbers as well as reading, writing and comparing numbers to 120 to help us better understand greater than, less than and equal to. We will also be counting to 120 and looking at these numbers and discussing what comes before or after when doing ordering activities. Your child also is bringing home today the topic, introduction page explaining more details about our place value unit.
On Monday, your child took a pre-test on review words from Storytown. This test is came home copied onto the homework practice/recording page. Once again, this weeks words are came home so make sure your child practices using the spelling ideas presented on the page. Thanks for your spelling support.
