WOW! Spring Break went awfully quickly and hope you enjoyed it as well as kept up with the reading log. As we are now into Unit 6 of math, I encourage you to check two new animated videos. Your children will be making a script dialogue incorporating word problems just like the second video on the page. In doing this they will hopefully recognize that addition and subtraction can be associative in its properties. If they have a good understanding of fact families such as: 2+8=10, 8+2+10 then 10-2=8 and 10-8=2, it will be easier for them to come up with stories that incorporate both operations. Mathematically this is a developmental progress. It will take time and practice. This is something you can do at home. If you wish to you can have your children work on an animated video telling a story. Goanimate.com is the website I used. Create and have fun.
