Math
This year in Math...

The focus of our daily math sessions will be development of mathematical discourse to invite and discover critical thinking methods.  Ask your student to "teach" you how we exchange.  Teaching others boosts understanding.

1st Quarter:
We will be working towards mastery of the following standards.

 I can use different strategies for addition to solve word problems within 20. I can understand how counting up is like adding and counting down is like subtracting. I can add within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition to 10. I can subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for subtraction to 10. I can understand the meaning of the equal sign, and determine if equations involving addition and subtraction are true or false. I can read, write and count to 120 starting at any number. I can read and write my numbers to show how many objects are in a group (up to 120)

2nd Quarter:
We will be working towards mastery of the following standards.
 I can use fact families to help me solve addition problems. I can use different strategies for subtraction to solve word problems within 20. I can use what I know addition facts to help me answer subraction fact problems. I can determine the unknown whole number in an addition or subtraction equation relating three whole numbers. I can understand that the two digits of a two-digit number represent amounts of tens and ones. I can compare two two-digit numbers based on meanings of the tens and ones digits, recording the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, and <. I can use addition facts to help me solve problems with more than two numbers.. I can read, write and count to 120 starting at any number. I can read and write my numbers to show how many objects are in a group (up to 120)

3rd Quarter:

We will be working toward mastery of the following standards.
 I can solve word problems that call for addition of three whole numbers whose sum is less than or equal to 20. I can use math strategies to help me solve and explain addition problems to 100. I can use objects and pictures to help me solve and explain addition problems to 100. I can understand that adding two-digit numbers means I add the ones and then the tens. I can understand that when I add two-digit numbers sometimes I will have to regroup. Given a two-digit number, I can mentally find 10 more or 10 less than the number, without having to count; explain the reasoning used. I can use different strategies to subtract multiples of 10 (10-90) from numbers under 100. I can read, write and count to 120 starting at any number. I can read and write my numbers to show how many objects are in a group (up to 120)

4th Quarter:
We will be working toward mastery of the following standards.
 I can put 3 objects in order from longest to shortest and compare the lengths. I can tell the length of an object using whole numbers. I can use a smaller object as a measuring tool to measure an object. I can define the attributes (parts) that make different shapes unique. I can build and draw shapes that have the proper attributes (parts). I can create 2 and 3 dimensional shapes. I can use 2 and 3 dimensional shapes to create new shapes. I can partition circles and rectangles into two and four equal shares, and describe the shares using the words whole, halves, fourths, and quarters I can read, write and count to 120 starting at any number. I can read and write my numbers to show how many objects are in a group (up to 120)
