We are doing a Math Pilot for 2019-2020!
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome back for another exciting school year! This year, several classrooms across Central Dauphin’s elementary schools will be piloting a new math program. The program is called Into Math by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and is the latest research-based program released by this company. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt is the same company that developed Go Math! which is the current program used within the district.
Your child’s teacher will be piloting Into Math throughout the entire school year. This program will still expose students to the same skills and concepts required by the Pennsylvania Core Mathematics Standards, and students will continue to receive instruction that is tailored to their specific needs.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me!
Additionally, Math Facts are a major focus for first grade. Students need to be able to solve addition and subtraction facts to 20 using manipulatives. Expect math homework to come home a few times a week and continue to practice math facts at home. Both are important! :)Here are 2 fun sites full of math games for every level.http://www.xtramath.org
