We are continuing to work on our final math unit of addition and subtraction. We will increase the numbers we are adding and subtracting from numbers within 5 to numbers within 10 and we will also increase the word problems to be more challenging with missing addends or a missing beginning (not just missing sums) An example story problem: Farmer Brown has 8 hay bales, his horse eats some hay bales. Now Farmer Brown has 3 hay bales left. How many hay bales did the horse eat? 8__=3
Students are not expecting to know how to read the story problems themselves. Students are expected to use their listening skills to hear key words in order to know if they must add or subtract. This unit will carry us through until the middle of May. Please continue to work with your child at home on fact fluency, adding and subtracting numbers within 5 without using their fingers!

We will be measuring using nonstandard forms of measurement. This means we will not use rulers as our primary measurement tool. In this unit students will be expected to:
This unit has a lot of vocabulary! Students will need to understand the words: length, weight, height, size and capacity. At home, you can talk about the measurements of objects and comparing objects as they can be measured. For example: which stuffed animal is bigger? Can we build a tower that is taller than ____? What is something that weighs more than your toy? 11/2/2018 0 Comments Shapes!We are wrapping up our unit on comparing numbers and taking apart and putting together numbers. The postassessment for that unit will be next week, but these skills will be continuously practiced throughout the school year for students to show consistency in understanding.
