Monthly Specials
  Spring is here! Or is it? The Whitehall Elementary raised $3745.00 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. NYS testing for grades 3-8 is just around the corner. Our students are well prepared academically. Let's make sure they are rested and ready to go. They will rock this year.

Appetizers

(quick Math practices to get you started)


Flash Cards- available at dollar stores, or better, yet make them together. There is not a lot of time to practice here at school. Most of this practice needs to be done at home.

Skip Counting- First learn counting by 2s, 5s, 10s, 100s, then try 3s, 9s, 11s. Finally, the tough ones 4s, 6s, 7s, and 8s. You'll be amazed at how this helps.

Real-life Counting

ex. How many cars passed us on the way to Glens Falls?

How many forks did you put away?

Classifying/Grouping

ex. Put groups of similar things together. Sort by color, size, shape, number of items. (laundry, silverware, coins) Ask "How are these groups the same or different?"

Time

What is a face clock (analog)?

Ask:

What time is it?

How long did it take you?

How long must you wait?

Money

Sort and count coins.

Have your child make change.

Collect the different state coins.

Discuss the information on the money.

Games

Go Fish with playing cards

Dominoes

Dice- Roll, add or multiply the numbers.
