Subtraction

Subtraction

Help your child build an understanding of subtraction by pointing out when it is used in daily life. For example, count ten grapes. Ask your child how many grapes are left after they have eaten 5. Count the grapes and say, "Ten minus five equals five."
Teach students the meaning of subtraction by labeling a subtraction number sentence. Include key vocabulary such as whole, part, minus sign and equal sign. Give students plenty of examples to help them build a conceptual understanding of subtraction.

Reading Strategies

Reflection on Reading Strategies

Now is a good time to reflect on reading strategies that your child has learned in school. Ask your child what they do to read tricky words and understand different stories. They might note that they sound out words letter-by-letter or look at pictures for clues.
Now is a good time of year to have students think about what they need to work on in their reading. Kids can record strategies they want to improve on sticky notes and attach them to their desks or their cubbies. For example, if a child wants to work on sounding out words, they might write "c-a-t" down so they can remember to do this.

How-To Writing

You can help your child develop how-to writing skills by talking through the steps to do simple tasks. For some silly fun, have your chlid explain to you how to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and only perform the actions described. It's harder than you might think!
When starting a how-to writing unit, be sure to model and interactively write an example with your whole class. Use something that the whole class knows how to do, like brushing teeth, making a sandwich, or checking out a book from the library!
