Students are divided into groups according to learning style and skill level. Groups are fluid throughout the year to complement each child’s learning needs. All groups utilize concrete manipulative materials to facilitate problem-solving and calculation tasks. Students are encouraged to master addition and subtraction skills through daily “Minute Math” exercises. Key concepts introduced this year include two-digit addition and subtraction with regrouping. Students also work on measurement, geometry, fractions, money, graphing, and solving word-problems. Toward the end of the year, children encounter the concepts of multiplication and division in array form and as repeated addition and subtraction.
