All mathematicians will be given a set of addition and subtraction flash cards for home. Your child will cut out cards, write answer on back lightly with a pencil, cut off answer that is on the front, practice daily, and place cards in a baggie to store. Each student will use the strategies learned in the classroom to solve the problems and should say the answer within 3 seconds. Please refer to the First Grade Parent Packet for information regarding strategies. Only practice all addition, then all subtraction cards. When mastered, mix them up. Different sets of paper cards will be sent home when your child masters previous sets. PRACTICE FACTS AND HAVE FUN!
