We are finishing starting unit 5 this week: geometry- all about 2D and 3D shapes. Although your child has been familiar with shapes since infancy, we'll work on defining each shape (i.e. a rectangle is much more complex than simply a 4 sided shape) using mathematical terms.
We are working on establishing a homework routine. Look for homework to come home once a week (either Monday or Tuesday) and please encourage students to return it no later than Friday. Other than seeking help with reading the directions, students should be able to complete their homework independently.
Bridges is a problem solving based curriculum with lots of hands on activities.
We have a Number Corner which is updated daily and various workstations to reinforce concepts.
We will continue to have daily Number Talks to improve our math communication skills.
