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

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!
