Math News from Miss Garcia, 

It’s week 4 in first grade!  We worked hard learning about number bonds last week.  This week, the 1st grade students will continue to study number bonds up to the number 10 as well as introduce the missing “part” of a number bond.  


Linked below is an online activity for 10 frames.  Students are familiar with 10 frames from learning them in Kindergarten

Have a great week!!!
