|5 Frames used in Math|
In math, I will be assessing the children on their ability to read, write, count, and build to 5. Many children are doing a great job with this skill. Some may think this is an easy skill; however, this starts the foundation for children and success in mathematics. A lot of research has been conducted around the world on how children learn mathematics and beginning here is key. The children have had to build the number 5 and recognize a set of 5 without counting. In addition, children have had to develop an understanding for what makes 5. For example, children have had to know if I have 3, 2 more makes 5. Finally, Chapter 1 math packets are due on September 24 and 25th!
Finally, we are almost complete with all the state and district mandated assessments. I will be sending home information on how your child did on the DIBELS assessment in the upcoming week. I will let everyone know when I will be sending these home for sure to make sure you know to check your child's folder. I will also be contacting parents to discuss these scores further.
I hope everyone has a great week. The children are learning procedures extremely well. I will be letting you all know about some donation items which we may need in the classroom to continue our learning experience. Thanks for all of your support...I am loving everyday with your children!
