We want to formally thank Cassy Turner, Math in Focus representative. She led a scintillating Parent Night, which gave an overview of our math program and stressed the importance of understanding applied math, along with consistent practice of basic facts.
Along with the Parent Night, Cassy also facilitated a teacher workshop on Thursday, October 20, and met with grade level teams to zero in on questions on how best to improve our knowledge of upcoming concepts and skills. Through these conversations, we have added an additional second grade practice math activities for homework on Wednesdays. We will also integrate some math skills (measurement, mass and volume) with science lessons.
Be sure to ask your child about these important strategies:

Part/Part Whole (Number Bonds or Fact Families)
