November Math Update

Rather than bore you with picture after picture of county workbook pages, I will just tell you that both of the younger girls have already blown through the entire thing! It's crazy!! These math books have been a pleasurable past time for these two.
Also, we have found so many wonderful math websites with math games and they would rather play those than the Game Cube!
Here is a list of the areas that they have touched on that we will elaborate on later in the year:


  • Number Relationships
  • Addition (Joining Groups)
  • Addition Sentences (using the plus sign and finding the sum)
  • Subtraction Stories (separating and take away)
  • Subtraction Sentences (using the Minus sign and finding the difference)
  • Numbers to 100
  • Skip Counting


  • Fact Families
  • Solid Figures
  • Plane Shapes
  • Fractions
  • Telling Time
  • Number Patterns
  • Tens and Ones
  • Counting Money
  • Two Digit Addition and Subtraction
