The book we will be using to study Math this year is called McGraw-Hill My Math.
We will begin Math time each day taking a look at the day of the week and the date on the calendar as well as counting to 100 and keeping track of the number of days we have been in school.
Our third Chapter in Math has us using 1:1 correspondence (touching each object as we are counting it) to count up to twenty objects. Students can practice this at home with their toys and even food (For example: Have your child put two cucumber slices or three cherry tomatoes in each family member's salad bowl). Students should also be able to recognize numbers 0 to 20.
Other ways to reinforce Math skills with your child at home:
- Have your child practice counting to 100.
- Has your child mastered counting to 100 by 1s? Try counting to 100 in different ways such as by 5s and 10s. Counting by 5s and 10s is an important skill needed for counting money. Counting by 5s is a prerequisite skill needed for telling time on an analog clock.
- Counting backwards by 1s from 100 introduces your child to counting back (a skill they will need for subtraction).
