Next week we will wrap up our Unit 5: investigating addition and subtraction. Our next and final unit of kindergarten is continuing addition and subtraction. We will increase the numbers from within 5 to within 10 and we will also increase the word problems to be more challenging with missing addends (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
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!
