MathHow do I make a ten? How do I count multiple tens? What does expanded form mean?   
As we move into further understanding of math concepts- it is important to work on these concepts at home. A few ways you may help is:  

  • Begin discussing that a dime is equal to ten cents- see if your child can count by tens utilizing some dimes 
  • Have students count forwards and backwards starting from random numbers. For example, starting at 32 count forwards OR starting at 47 count backwards.  
  • Discuss what the word value means with your child 



Notes: All about CoGAT

 Information will be coming home soon about a test your child will be participating in called CoGAT. This test is to better assist your child’s teacher in understanding how they think. There is nothing you need to do to prepare with the exception of having your child to school on time, with a full tummy (breakfast), and plenty of rest. This will help your child focus on the task at hand.
