School Focus: As with last year, the focus at Haller continues to be with MATHEMATICS! Don’t YOU love math?! Math is the leading factor in student success at school.
How can you help at home this week? Students should be practicing number fluency regularly. Practice math facts so they are recalled quickly.
Early Years: Counting to 20 and beyond and number recognition to 20
Primary: Addition and Subtraction math facts (single digits and then double digits with regrouping)
Junior: Multiplication and Division math facts
Intermediate: Flexibility with whole numbers, decimals, fractions and integers
Prompts to Support Parents: Talk to your kids about math!! Present problems in real life (especially with money), and use these prompts to have them show their understanding:
-justify, explain or prove their answers
-compare, determine, define, describe, identify, list, predict, summarize
