In math we have started doing word problems. Today one student helped us read the problems and then chose students to act it out.
We have been doing word problems every day. You can help at home by thinking up some problems for your own child such as, "If we have 5 forks and then 5 spoons, how many do we have in all?" or "I'm giving you ten Goldfish. If you eat 4 of them, how many do you have left?" Or at the grocery store, "Let's get 3 apples and 4 oranges. Now how many do we have?"
