Your child’s teacher is available to answer questions about your child’s progress and what they are learning in class.  Be sure to attend conferences, contact your child’s teacher via email, notes, and/or phone calls.  Be sure to review any work that comes home (corrected papers, classwork or homework) to see what your child is working on in class.  Work on counting to 100 and addition /subtraction throughout the Winter to support your child.  

Questions you can ask the teacher:  
  • How is my child progressing with counting?  
  • Can my child count objects up to 20?
  • Is my child able to count by 10s and 1s to 100?  
  • Can my child add and subtract?  
  • Can you assist me in how to support my child as he/she develops his/her ability to add and subtract?
