This week is Math (January 15th): Telling Time

This week in math we will be covering:

  • Telling time to the hour, half hour and quarter hour
  • Writing time in analogue and digital forms
  • Estimating time of day for various events (ie; waking up, breakfast, lunch, dinner, bedtime)
  • Understanding that there are 60 seconds to the minute, 60 minutes to the hour and 24 hours to the day.
  • Determining the duration of elapsed time to the hour and half hour

Below are some helpful videos to practice the above skills at home:

Students can also practice telling time on IXL on the following tabs.

P.1, P.2, P.3, P.4, P.5, P.6, p.7, p.8, p.9

Here is a fun games to practice elapsed time:

This Week In Math (December 4th) – Adding and Subtracting

This week in Math, we are working on 2-digit addition and subtraction WITHOUT “carrying” (though the term is regrouping). For example…

To support this skill, students should review their addition facts as well as practice the 2-digit addition skill. In school, we are using base-ten blocks to help organize our thoughts.

Here are some games to practice with at home:

This video is a FANTASTIC and quick lesson for students and parents alike:

For additional practice, try LEVEL 4 and LEVEL 6 of this computer game:

This Week in Math (Nov 27): 3d Shapes

This week, we are transitioning from 2D Shapes to 3D Shapes. We are reviewing the following shapes and discussing the 2D shapes we can find in their faces.

Triangular Pyramid
Square Pyramid
Triangular Prism
Square Prism
Rectangular Prism

For fun at home, check out this video to review some of the 3D Shapes!

As a fun activity at home, students can print out these nets and fold them into 3D Shapes.

This Week in Math (Oct 30th – Nov 3rd) Counting by Tens From Any Number

This week we are learning strategies for skip counting by ten starting from ANY number less than 100. We have learned a few strategies:

1. Find the number on the Hundred Chart. Follow the column to count on by tens.

2. Draw the number using base ten blocks. Add a ten stick for every extra ten you count.

3. Remember the pattern that when counting by tens the ones place doesn’t change. Example: 12 – 22 – 32 – 42 –> The number always ends in two.

4. Use dimes and coins to help you skip count by tens.

This Week in Math (October 23 – 27)

This week we are reviewing REPRESENTING numbers up to 100 in different ways. We can use base ten, ten frames, pictures and more.

In particular, we have learned about Canadian money, using coins as a way to show a number as an amount. Enjoy these fun videos about Canadian coins…


Optional IXL tabs to work on include:

O.1Coin values

O.2Count money – up to $1

O.4Equivalent amounts of money – up to $1
