What is my child learning about!?
Math: We are currently learning about addition and subtraction, as well as various strategies to solve math problems. We have learned some awesome Math games to make this process more fun. Number sense is a continuous focus throughout the entire year, and we will continue to learn calendar related activities such as months/days and the ability to count by 2s, 5s, and 10s to 100,.
Language Arts: Reading & writing is a continuous focus in Grade one Language Arts. It is so exciting to see how everyone is developing and progressing. Please keep up with the home reading as much as you can–it truly makes a difference!
