In first grade we are using the program Go Math.  It is a very challenging program but it also offers activities and lessons for students who find it challenging.  More information about Go Math will be coming soon.  
         When math homework does not come home, you can help your child by: playing card games or board games, working on telling time (on the hour and half-hour), counting money (pennies, nickels, dimes and eventually quarters), or playing a mystery number game ("I'm thinking of a number between __ and ___.")
