What do we offer at Huntley Wharf, Reading?
During 1st grade, children will then learn addition and subtraction facts, two-digit numbers, some adding and subtracting with two-digit numbers, and some basics of measuring, time and money. One extremely helpful manipulative to buy is a basic 100-bead abacus (10 racks, 10 beads in each). This is the prime “toy” to teach numbers beyond ten. With such an abacus children will naturally learn their “tens and ones”.
What will children learn when they take math classes?
