In Math, we have been doing some pretty secret work. Math Secrets, that is. The children have their own Math Secrets booklets and have been learning 100 addition facts! How are they learning all of those facts you ask? Well, they have a chart of 100 addition facts in their booklets and each time we learn a strategy, for example, adding zero, counting on, doubles, doubles plus one, they shade in all of the facts that go with that strategy. They are always surprised at how many facts they are able to learn in such a short amount of time. Then, they write down an explanation and draw a picture for that strategy.

We have also been learning about turnaround facts and how to write number sentences. The children have been learning how to explain their thinking so that they can show and teach others.
