Nonsense words can be tricky. Here is a link to several videos that can help them with this sometimes daunting task.

If this tasks seems to easy, write a list of several nonsense words and see how many your child can read correctly in one minute. Can they automatically read the word or do they have to sound it out first?

I couldn't resist taking pictures of Grade One during math class today. They worked their little hearts out using different mental math strategies they have learned thus far (Counting On, Partners of Ten and Adding Doubles). Keep up the great work boys and girls!

Keep in mind...

When adding O, the sum stays the same as the greatest number being added.

When adding 1, count on 1 more from the greatest number.

When adding 2, count on 2 more from the greatest number.

Students have had a blast playing games under the "addition" section on this website. Now they can have fun practicing their facts at home too!
