It is very important
that your child practice some type of math every night at home. In grades 1
and 2, students need to practice their addition and subtraction facts and in
grades 3 thru 6, students need to practice their multiplication facts. Children
should be able to state the facts with automaticity. The Standards in Math are
very rigorous and children who don't know their multiplication facts find it
difficult to do mathematics above addition and subtraction. Listed below you
will find many mathematics web sites that will help your child become better
in math, but also provide some fun practicing and reviewing skills they may
have already learned.
The first one listed is the link to
our new math series, California Math, that is published by Houghton Mifflin.
This website provides many games and activities that correlate with the current
chapter that your child is studying in mathematics. It is very easy to navigate
through...you just follow the prompts.
Listed below you will find the
UNRAAVEL strategy that we are teaching students to use when working with word
problems. It is very easy to follow and it is something that parents could use
with their children at home.

the word problem
the important numbers/words circled? (Especially the clue
the steps you choose to solve the problem
your answer (Is it reasonable? Does it make sense?)
