The Primary Math Minute Raiser November 1st to 30th!

October 30, 2014 by · No Comments · School News

The Math Fact Minute Raiser is back!  For the month of November, students in Junior Kindergarten to Grade 3 will be challenged to practise their math facts at home each evening.  Each class will set a classroom goal and then each child will need to record the number of minutes that they spend practising their math facts each night.  This is your child’s opportunity to “raise” the number of minutes that they spend working on and memorizing their math facts.

Teachers in Junior Kindergarten to Grade 3 will spend some time during the month of November working on the facts.  Please encourage your child(ren) to do the same at home each night. In order for your child (ren) to memorize their math facts it will be important for a parent to work with them if they are younger. The following are the math facts your child (ren) should be memorizing based on their grade:

 

Kindergarten;                Counting/ Numbers

Grade 1:                           Addition/Subtraction facts to 5+5

Grade 2/3:                       Addition/Subtraction facts to 9+9

Grade 2/3 Extension:    Multiplication Facts to 5 x 5

Check out our school website to find some links to math fact games and activities. Students can work on them at home by writing them out, reviewing the with a parent or on the internet. Why not download some great math fact apps for iPads, iPods and phones? You can even count time spent reviewing them as you are driving somewhere with your child.

If your son/daughter has memorized (immediate recall) the facts for the specified grade level please move on to memorizing the facts for the next grade level.

math factsPlease send in the completed logs each time the log is full. If you require more logs, please let your child(ren)’s teacher know and a new log will be sent home. You can also get a log below. At the end of the Minute Raiser, all logs can be sent in and any child that has spent some time on their facts will receive a ballot.
