•        Did you hear what's happening in second grade math workshop?  The children have been busy learning models to help show their thinking while solving problems.  Have your child continue to practice counting forward and backwards by ten beginning with any number.  In addition, continue to explore the relationship between addition and subtraction.  One way to practice is creating fact families.
    For example:
    4,6 and 10 are part of the same family
    4 + 6 = 10
    6 +4 = 10
    10 - 4 = 6
    10 - 6 = 4
    We are learning to solve addition number equations with more than 2 addends.  The children know to look for tens and doubles facts to help them reach the sum. 
    Have fun with math!
