• Math

    Our math program is based on the Pennsylvania State standards. Topics this year include:

    • Addition and subtraction, with and without regrouping, up to 1,000
    • Word problems
    • Geometry
    • Money
    • Time
    • Multiplication/arrays
    • Measurement

    We will use various materials to help your child learn these concepts. If you want to give your child a heads up on them, here are several ways to make his/her learning fun.

    • Ask addition/subtraction problems when you’re in the car. It gives your child an opportunity to review what has been addressed in class.
    • Let them count your change. If they can identify and add correctly, let them keep it! 
    • Most children have digital clocks, but they are required to be able to read a regular one. Please use vocabulary such as quarter after, twenty of, half past, etc. Anything you can do to help themgrasp this concept,would be beneficial.
    • Count by 2’s, 5’s, and 10’s. It will help them make the transition to multiplication easier.
