• Math In Focus


    Great Valley is using the math program called Math In Focus. It is a Singapore math program that will help the students to gain a deep understanding of mathematical concepts and achieve success throughout their math career. 

    We are also using a computer based program called Dreambox. This is a program that can be used on a tablet (as an app) or on the computer (through the internet). This program is a game based mathematical learning tool. It differentiates the activities to meet the needs of each individual child. This is a wonderful program  that the children really enjoy. Within the first few weeks of school a letter will be sent home with your child's log in directions. 
    Additionally, we also work through daily Number Talks. Number Talks are short, daily exercises aimed at building number sense. As a part of this routine, students are thinking, asking their peers questions, and explaining their own thinking all while the teacher records the thinking.
