Math Facts Breakfast

Submitted by carrie.vannosdol on Mon, 12/16/2013 - 17:34

Since the beginning of the year, second grade students at Park View Elementary have been working on Addition Math Facts #1-20.  Students take time during class to practice with flash cards, timed tests, and the number of the day. They are also required to practice at least 3 nights a week as homework. At least once a week, students meet one on one with their teacher or a parent volunteer and try to pass off a new set of facts. If they can do each fact within about 3-5 seconds or with fluency then they pass it off and move on to the next set of facts.

Each year Mrs. Thomas' Kindergarten classes study about the Pilgrims, the Native Americans and the First Thanksgiving.  To put it all together, the classes hold a yummy feast and children practice being Pilgrims while the parents come as Native American guests.  The Pilgrim children welcome the Native American guests with a song.  The Native Americans and Pilgrims enjoy a wonderful feast together!
