                  Math in Focus: Singapore Math Student Workbook, Book A Grade 2                                        
This year we will be using a Singapore math based program for math. This is not different math but just a different way of teaching it. The students will learn the same math but my hope is that they'll have a deeper understanding of the foundational concepts that will build future success.  Please be sure to share any of your thoughts as we get into the program.

Building new math skills will rely on fluid recall of facts through 10. We will build all understanding off of these foundational numbers. When adding larger numbers we will always look for tens which will rely heavily on mastery of the understanding of numbers less than 10.      

Be aware that we are doing math first thing in the morning. So it is very important that your child arrives to school on time every day.
