2nd and 3rd Grade News

Dear Grade 2 and 3 parents,

We are looking to master our addition math facts.  We are focusing on completing 25 addtion facts in one minute.  We are using a program called Rocket Math several times a week.  In Rocket Math each child works with a partner to practice the facts by reading them, saying them, and writing them.  After we practice, the children are timed for one minute.  You may want to practice this at home.  Attached is a link that you can go to print out math fact worksheets.  The children are enjoying trying to beat their record.  We have focused on learning the doubles, as well as +1.  I have noticed that practicing to write the numbers as fast as they can really helps.
