Dear Families, Summer is officially underway, and we hope that you enjoy your summer vacation! We hope you don't forget to practice your math, too! To help you with this, the second grade has created a review math packet. The primary focus of the packet is to review and maintain skills that were developed in the second grade. None of the concepts in the packet should be new to your second grader. Here is some information to help you get started on the math packet: · The packet will be available both on-line and in the schools. You can find the packet on the "Summer Math Packet" link at or you may visit your school office for a paper copy. Try to work on a few of the math problems each week (about twenty minutes). Your child should be able to complete it by the start of the school year. We ask that students use pencil and show all of the work they did in solving the problems. Please help your child if they find any of the problems too difficult. This packet will be collected during the first or second week of school. Even though this is an optional activity, it is highly recommended that it be completed. A baseline test will also be given at that time to see what skills your child needs to review.

· · ·

Also, we feel that you should be aware of the math skills your child should have mastered at the end of second grade. By now, your child should be: · Fluent in basic math facts addition and subtraction. Many children need to move beyond the finger counting stage to memorize their math facts. Flashcards and homemade practice sheets are excellent ways to practice. An automatic recall of the basic facts will allow students to concentrate on solving more difficult math problems and concepts in third grade. Able to use simple measurement tools to determine length in both inches and centimeters and tell time (digital and analog). Students will need these skills to determine elapsed time and simple unit conversions. Able to understand place value of numbers up to 1,000 and be able to represent these in standard and expanded form (1,359 = 1,000+300+50+9). Apply all of their math skills to solve one step word problems. Steps for problem solving is provided in the review packet.

We thank you very much for your help and support in making the start of the third grade year a success. We hope you enjoy your summer vacation. Sincerely,

Second Grade Teachers
