Math at the Primary is so much fun! We take a hands-on approach to teaching mathematics in our classrooms. Teachers use music and movement, manipulatives, games, paper/pencil activities, and technology to teach math concepts.
We currently use the enVision MATH series to help us teach the Missouri Learning Standards in Mathematics. This math series is very focused, effective, and problem-solving-based. It is research-based, and aligns well with the MLS It offers a unique technology integration, which allows students to interact with technology in the classroom and in the computer lab. Your child's teacher may choose to take advantage of this and send home a username and password which would allow your child to access games and extra practice activities from home.
Mathematic concepts that your child will be exposed to at the Primary School are: number sense, place value, calendar skills, addition, subtraction, money, time, measurement, geometry, fractions, graphing. Our biggest priority before sending students to third grade is that students are fast and fluent with addition and subtraction facts through 20. Kindergarten, first, and second grade teachers all work hard to prepare our students to be problem-solving thinkers who do their best every day.
