To Whom It May Concern:
The students have been playing games to learn our math facts. It is important that they get out of the habit of using fingers, and simply just know the facts quickly. Here is a game you can play at home. It is easy and requires minimal materials. Put 10 beans in a brown bag. Have your child pull out some beans and write a number sentence.
Student pulls 3 beans out
Student can then write 3+ 7 =10
Student then checks their answer by counting the number of beans in the bag
When they have mastered 10 facts go up to 20 beans
Forms for the Six Flags Reading Program went home today. The students need to return their forms on February 12, 2017 to their homeroom teacher.
