Ok, I've enjoyed my summer and neglected my website long enough. I'm well rested and ready to surf into a new school year. Sorry for leaving my website "under construction" so long. I kinda got side tracked by the beach and kayaks. Oops!
Assignment 1 Kiddos: Brush up on those addition and subtraction facts!!! Remember if you have your addition memorized then you've got the subtraction.
When you come into third grade this year I really expect you to know your addition facts fluently. Our big focus in third grade is MULTIPLICATION. But guess what... Multiplication is repeated addition. If you're good at addition, well then you've got mulitiplication in the bag.
Do you know your doubles quickly and without using fingers?
If you do then you should be able to do your doubles plus one quickly as well.
ie. If you know 4 + 4 = 8 then you know that 4 + 5 = 9
Do you know all your combinations of 10? THIS IS SOOOOO IMPORTANT!!!!
ie. 8 + 2 = 10, 6 + 4 = 10 and so on
If mom or dad has an Iphone there's a great app called Math Tappers, Finding Sums. It will help you with your combos of 10.
I'll get a website scavenger hunt up and running soon. It will be your first math assignment in third grade.
Feel free to check out Unit 1 and see what we'll be learning first. You can find this on the menu bar to the left.
I'm looking forward to meeting all of you. We'll be riding the waves in Math before you know it.
