Singapore Math   

Chapter 12: Numbers to 40

Big Idea: Count, compare, and order numbers from 1-40

  • count on, read and write in numbers and words from 21-40
  • use place value chart to show numbers up to 40
  • show objects up to 40 as tens and ones (feel free to practice this concept at home too!) “A group of/row of/strip of 10 is 10 1’s” this belongs in the tens place and 1’s are loose and belong in the ones place
  • compare numbers to 40
  • find missing numbers in a pattern

*** If you are able, please practice math facts (addition and subtraction) with your children.  In addition to having students read passwords (sight words) before they come into the room, I have incorporated math facts!   *strategies we remind students to use are: counting on and back, and using other math problems (such as doubles) to help them figure out the answer.
