Math at home

Math at home

I often hear from parents who want their child to have extra math practice at home.  Here are a few ways you can have your child have extra practice at home.

Flash cards: Students need to be automatic at their facts within 20 (addition facts up to 10+10, subtraction facts up to 20-20, multiplication facts up to 10x10)

Money: Students need to be able to identify all coins and dollars by name and amounts and add up money.  In a society that uses mostly debit cards, this has become a challenge for our students.

Telling time: Students need to be able to tell time on an analog clock and know common phrases such as half past, quarter after and quarter to.
