August 2012 in Review

Kindergartners have been working on number identification and counting to 5.

First graders have been counting numbers from 0 - 10; 11 - 19; 20 - 29, 30 - 39, and now 40 - 49.  First graders have also been learning about even and odd.

Second graders have been skip counting by 2s, 5s, 10s, and 100s.  They have also learned how to express a number in more than one way.  Second graders can express a number in standard form, word form, expanded form, and in Base Ten blocks.

Third graders have been learning how to use a number line to add and subtract.  They have also been working on problem solving skills and knowing when to use addition or subtraction in word problems.

Fourth graders have been working on rounding numbers to the nearest 10s, 100s, 1000s, and 10,000s. 

Fifth graders have been learning how to write expressions and compute numbers using order of operations.  Fifth graders have also learned about factors and multiples, and prime and composite numbers.
