Basic Addition Games
We are settling into the routines and pracitices of the new school year. I have enjoyed seeing all of the students again and hearing about their summer adventures. This year I will be working primarily with 5th grade, though I will be checking in with 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades as well. I have moved rooms this year. You can now find me on the 3rd floor in room 210, next to Mrs. Nylen's room.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child's academic or social skills, please don't hesitate to contact me by calling the Elementary office at 683-5857 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Below, you will find some suggestions for practicing skills at home and links to online resources. If you need any additional resources, don't hesitate to send me an email at email@example.com. I frequently check my email and will get back to you promptly.
Suggestions for practicing skills at home...
- Information about book lists and reading levels
- Check out the site readkiddoread.com for booklists and suggestions to encourage reading at home.
- Read to your child and have them read to you.
- Have your child practice reading familiar text in front of a mirror. Repeated readings help students improve fluency.
- Ask your child questions about what they are reading. Questions like, "What has happened so far, What do you think will happen next, Who are the characters, Do you like the story, What does this story make you think of?"
- Play word card Memory. Create 2 sets of word cards with your child and place face down in even rows and columns. Have your child read each card as they are flipped over. Try to match the set. These can be rhyming words, words that focus on a specific spelling pattern, or content vocabulary words.
- Play Top-It with a deck of cards (just like War...higher card wins).
- Play Addition Top-It: each player flips two cards, add them together, the higher sum wins.
- Practice math facts.
- Play addition and subtraction dice games.
- Keep a journal of personal experiences, fictional stories, or poems--and of course, include a sketch. :)
