MathWe focus on mental math strategies when completing basic math skills.Students need to know their numbers to 100 both numerically (83) and to read the word. (This includes knowing numbers in a random order).They need to be able to spell the words for 0-20. Calendar Skills know the months, days and season.Math contdThe focus of the Math curriculum is for students to be able to explain how they arrive at their answers. This is a difficult concept but its a great opportunity for students to learn and recognize that there are different ways to arrive at an answer. Ex...9+6=15 which some students solve by adding 10+5, while others use 6+6+3=15
