We are starting out Unit 4 in Everyday Mathematics. This unit focuses primarily on measurement but also includes reading a bar graph, telling time to the quarter-hour and basic addition facts.
- Unit of measurement
- Addition facts
At-Home Activities you can practice:
- Practice reading a clock to the half hour on both digital and analog clocks throughout the day, feel free to move onto 15 min. increments once your child is ready
- Note all the ways you measure items (gas/speed in a car, ingredients when cooking, checking clothing sizes, temperature, air conditioner, oven, refrigerator, etc…)
- Have child solve simple math problems (I had 8 eggs and used 5. How many do I have left?)
As always, authentic examples we come across everyday in our normal lives are an excellent means to show your child the importance of math, as opposed to sheets upon sheets of practice.
Thank you for your support,
