This week we continued to learn more ideas about math. We worked together to make a chart of counting by 10's and 5's. Many of the young mathematicians are familiar with counting by 5's and 10's, but we still cover the concept as a class at least once to make sure everyone has a chance to be reminded of strategies, learn the idea for a the first time, or share their good math ideas with others. Ask your child to count by 5's and 10's for you!
Number corner also gives us time to learn more about how numbers relate to each other. One way we learn more about equations is by discovering addition equations that are "doubles" - such as 2 + 2 and "neighbors" such as 1+2. This strategy will help as we move into adding larger numbers past ten.
