The focus of this unit is on computation of basic + and - facts. We studied many strategies and shortcuts for children to use and practice so they don't have to count on their fingers.
Please use the fact triangles that your child brought home. These are like flash cards with one major difference. The more your child uses them to practice their facts, the more familiar they become with fact families. When they know fact families, they will become quicker at completing basic facts. When they see a problem and recognize the numbers in it as part of a fact family, they will easily be able to identify the missing number.
