    Topic 12, Comparing Numbers to 100
     
    How can you help your child with his/her math skills?
     
    Show two-digit numbers with pipe cleaners for tens sticks and dry beans or some other small item for ones. Name a two-digit number (Ex: 54). Have your child choose that number of tens and ones. OR You may also show tens and ones for two different numbers. Then compare those numbers by writing a true sentence about them. Ex: 54 is greater than 43, or 54 has one more ten than 43.

    How can I help my child in Language Arts?
     
    Read each night from the book bag that is sent home, and talk about the story content. Make connections from the book to real life. Read any chance you get - in the grocery store, street signs, in your pantry. Hang the words to know and spelling words around the house so that they're always available to read, put the closed captioning on the television so they are seeing what the characters are saying.
