Grade 3-5 Math

Mental Math:

Spend 10 minutes each day playing a game from your child’s GYGO (Get Your Game On) folder.  These were brought home in December.  They have several games that focus on the essential mental math skills of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.  Each game has a description of how to play and how to modify the rules to change the difficulty of the game.


This is a great learning tool that allows uses interactive games to provide a fun way for students to learn and practice their math skills.  Some great features of this:

·        It can be played on any computer/tablet/phone with internet capabilities.  Just download the app or go to Sumdog.com

·        Students username and password are on a sticker on the front of their agenda.

·        I have set the questions/skills so that they are working on the concepts that they were leaning when school was shut down.

·        I can adjust their questions as they progress and learn new concepts.

·        Instant feedback.

·        I can track their progress: What questions they are getting correct, incorrect, how much time they are spending on it.

·        It is interactive, so they can play against their friends/classmates.

·        They make “virtual” coins when they answer questions correctly that they can spend in their “house” or “buy” gifts for their friends with.

Playing mental math games and using Sumdog is a great way to continue with your child’s learning this week. 

In the coming weeks, I hope to support you with further resources as best I can.

Below is a link to a math brochure that provides more resources that may help you.  It also provides a “Big Ideas in Math”.  This gives you a good idea of the concepts we have been learning this year and hope to continue to learn.
