In January, we will begin our new math common core unit on addition and subtraction with regrouping. Students will use their place value understanding and properties of operations to add or subtract. We will use previously taught strategies such as math fact doubles, doubles plus 1 or 2, counting on, and counting back. Studying math facts at home is a great way to help your child with this unit.
In reading, we will go back to nonfiction books and study how text features help readers navigate through factual information. The DIBELS/TRC winter assessment will also start in January, but will take a couple of weeks to complete.
