# Skip Counting

We like to practice skip counting! We have fun songs to help us remember how to skip count by 10, 5, and 2.

Here are a few games to practice those math skills, too.

Counting by 2!

Practice skip counting by 5 and 10.

# Calendar happenings

Our Google Calendar permissions have been adjusted (thanks Mrs. K for letting me know you couldn’t see!).  I hope this will help you make some sense from the 6 day cycle over a 5 day week. It really isn’t as confusing as it sounds and laying it out on paper helps my visual learning style.

We have completed our social studies units of Citizenship, National Symbols, and Past, Present, and Future. Our focus will turn to the science side of things for the next few weeks as we explore tools that scientists use and the seasons.

We have covered some of the basic vocabulary of addition and subtraction and will soon be introducing some basic addition and subtraction strategies. Here is a game that will help practice basic subtraction skills. Click 1 and 2 for beginning levels (subtracting 1 and 2).

# Sqworl for math

We have a few favorite sqworls in our classroom already: our sqworl for listening to reading, and our sqworl for exploration and fun.

I am working to build a math sqworl that would give some practice on some essential skills for math if you are a new first grader, or a former Wonderful One looking to practice your skills.

Try out some of the activities by clicking on the squirrel… he will take you there!

Have you thought about subtraction lately? You might have been taking a subtraction vacation?

Here’s a fun way to practice a little so you don’t forget your skills! Thanks fun4thebrain!

Just click on the picture and practice! I hope you’re having a great vacation!

# That’s a Fact!

1. Click Go!

# Line them up!

Line up these paper clips to measure the school items. We’re practicing measuring things!

Can you do this in your own kitchen? Measure a spatula with beans! Measure a loaf of bread with apples! Get creative – leave a comment to tell us what you did.

# Snowy Subtraction

Is there enough snow for a snowman yet?

If you made a snowman, have your parents e-mail me a picture and we’ll put together a blog post with stories.

In the meantime, here is a warm way to have snowball fights and brush up on your subtraction facts.

Thanks fun4thebrain!

# Place Value

Ms. Heath is teaching place value this week. Here is a game that helps to support the skills being learned in class.

While we are working on graphing and place value, don’t forget how to add and subtract!

Here is a game from Fun4theBrain to help you keep up with your subtraction skills. Choose to practice Level 1-5. If it is too hard, just start at 1 and work up to 5.

# Tally Tables and Graphs

Ms. Heath is teaching math for the next few weeks. She will be working with the students on making tally tables, creating and reading graphs, and learning more about place value.

We are excited for her to share her math knowledge with us!

Here is a link to a game for graphing and using a calculator. Have fun!
