Math Is Happening!

  • Kindergarten students: continue practicing counting to 100 by ones and tens, write numbers from 0 – 20, and practice adding and subtracting numbers up to 10
  • Grade 1 students: adding and subtracting numbers up to 20, count to 120, and tell time to the hour and half hour
  • Grade 2: adding and subtracting numbers within 100, count to 1000 by 5s, 10s, and 100s, and tell and write time to the nearest five minutes
  • Grade 3: adding and subtracting within 1000, multiplication and division facts within 100, and tell and write time up to the nearest minute
  • Grade 4: add and subtract up to two 4-digit numbers, multiplication and division facts within 144, and multiply two 2-digit numbers
  • Grade 5: multiplication and division facts within 144, multiply up to a 4-digit number by a 3-digit number, and divide numbers up to a 4-digit number by a 2-digit number

School vacations and summer break does not always allow time for students to want to practice math. However, there are many websites available, that the students can access for free, that will engage them into practicing their math skills.

Math and Picture Books: Reading to your child is botha wonderful way to spend time together and also an effective way to engage your child in conversation. There are many Math stories available at the Library. Check out our school website for some math book ideas.

If you and your child are more comfortable in a language other than English, then read to your child in that language.

Your local public library may be helpful in choosing books connected to mathematics.

The link below may also be helpful to access digital books online in a number of languages: International Digital Library:

Other ways to encourage your child to practice their math.

Talk about Math: talking about Math with your child will help strengthen their mathematical reasoning and understanding. Some ways to support your child include:

  1. Revoice- repeat what you heard your child say, then ask for clarification
  2. Repeat/Restate - Ask your child to restate your reasoning
  3. Reason - Ask your child to apply his or her own reasoning to someone elses reasoning
  4. Adding on - Prompt your child to participate further
  5. Think Time - Wait several seconds (try five) to give your child time to think. (You may be surprised by how hard it is to stay silent that time!)

Daily Decisions: We all use Math daily in what we do. Involve your child in using numbers to solve problems and make those everyday decisions with you.
