Before Christmas break First Graders got into the Christmas spirit by making addition fact Christmas chains. Students worked collaboratively to solve their addition fact using red and green strips of paper. They had to figure out how many red and green strips they needed to make their addition fact. First Graders loved being able to do something fun, while still working on an important skill that is aligned to the Common Core, which is knowing addition facts to twenty.
We hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
