We continue to work on more addition and subtraction.  Students will need to understand the difference between the plus and minus sign.  When practicing at home alternate between addition and subtraction.  Use words like "more", "joined", or "how many in all" for addtion.  Use words like "take away" or "how many are left" for subtraction.  Say a word problem and then have your child solve.
