Our daily morning message helps students understand the basis of writing: we create sentences that make sense, put spaces between words, capitalize the letter I and words at the beginning of sentences, correctly use punctuation, and use popcorn words and other simply spelled words.
Friday we learned a new concept called "subitizing." It is being able to recognize the amount of objects quickly (in a flash) and correlate a digit with it. For instance, roll a dice, but only show the dots for a few seconds. Have your child write the digit - not the actual dots. You can also play an online dice game and have them write the digit on a piece of paper or dry erase board!
