It's all about the facts, about the facts, fact families

The first graders worked a lot this past week on fact families in math.  This is a picture of a fact family.  The students will have math homework on Wednesday and Thursday this week.  

Your child brought home fact triangle cards.  These cards will help them become more fluent with their addition and subtraction facts.  The boys are showing how to use them.  The addition fact is 2 + 10 and the subtraction fact is 7 - 2.  Please let me know if you have any questions about how to use them.  I would cut them all out and keep them in a safe spot, so you can pull them out to practice.

The class listened to the book, Love Monster and made their very own monster.  They had so much fun with this activity.  A big THANK YOU to the parents that helped out with our Valentine's Day party.  The kids had a blast!
