Everyday Math is the math program we use in Kindergarten. The program takes everyday activities and incorporates them into a useful, common sense math program. When children are read to, they learn to love books and want to become readers. In a similar way, children develop positive feelings about math by sharing pleasurable experiences as they count, measure, compare, estimate and discover patterns in everyday life.
Kindergarten Home Links provide a guide to a variety of activities that parents and children can share in a spirit of exploration and enjoyment, much as they share an interesting story.
The reward for young children is that math will not be a puzzling abstraction, but will make sense to them as part of their real world.
When your child brings home a Home Link activity, take a moment to look at the Family Note. Then, together with your child, read and do the activity described.
As always, your child's education is a partnership between school and home. It will take you and your child's hard work at home along with our hard work at school for them to become successful. Please complete the weekly Home Links and sign the Everyday Math Home Links paper in your child's homework folder. As always, if you have any concerns or questions feel free to contact me at school or via
e-mail. Thanks in advance for your cooperation!
