HES Mathematicians

Welcome to the 2019-20 school year in Mathematics here at HES. My name is Kimberly Daigle and have over 20 years experience in education. I obtained both my Bachelors, Masters, as well as PK-12 certifications at Lamar University. I was a classroom teacher for over 10 years at the elementary level, as well as a District Math Administrator for 4 years.
 If you have any questions please don't hesitate to reach out to me. It takes a village to ensure success. Please take a few minutes to read this article. Thanks for all you do to ensure your child's success. 


By 8:00 AM Monday morning, you will receive a Choice Board from your child’s teacher. Choice Boards will contain options for Math, Reading, Science, and Social Studies, but your child will NOT need to complete all of the activities, only the assigned number of activities for each content area. All work will be due by Friday at 4:00 PM. Please reach out to your child’s teacher if you have any questions or need any help. 


Thank you for your support. Parents have always been partners in education with us and we look forward to strengthening that partnership and growing even stronger as a community during this crisis.



El lunes a las 8:00 a.m. por la mañana, recibirá un “Choice Board” (tablero de elección) de la maestra de su hijo (a) . El “Choice Board” (tablero de elección) contendrán opciones para matemáticas, lectura, ciencias y estudios sociales, pero su hijo NO necesitará completar todas las actividades, solo el número asignado de actividades para cada área de contenido. Todo el trabajo se deberá entregar antes del viernes a las 4:00 PM. Comuníquese con la maestra de su hijo (a) si tiene alguna pregunta o necesita ayuda.


Gracias por tu apoyo. Los padres siempre han sido socios en la educación con nosotros y esperamos fortalecer esa asociación y crecer aún más como comunidad durante esta crisis.






This is a wonderful site with course challenges, remediation videos, and step by step guidance. Have your student take the course challenge and you will know what they need to work on to be successful in their current grade level. Thanks in advance and if you have any question please feel free to send me a message.

Here are five ways that parents can help their children with mathematics

Spend time with kids on simple board games, puzzles, and activities that encourage strong math skills. Even everyday activities, such as playing in a sandbox or in a bath tub can teach children math concepts such as weight, density, and volume. Check your TV listings for shows that can reinforce math skills in a practical and fun way.

  1. Encourage children to solve problems. Provide assistance, but let them figure it out themselves. Problem solving is a lifetime skill.
  2. The kitchen is filled with opportunities to teach fractional measurements, such as doubling and dividing cookie ingredients.
  3. Point out ways that people use math every day to pay bills, balance their checkbooks, make change, and calculate a tip at restaurants. Involve older children in projects that incorporate geometric and algebraic concepts, such as planting a garden, building a bookshelf, or figuring how long it will take to drive to your family vacation destination.
  4. Children should learn to read and interpret charts and graphs, such as those found in daily newspapers. Collecting and analyzing data will help your child draw conclusions and become discriminating readers of numerical information.

While teachers play an integral role in the education of children, it goes without saying that parental involvement makes the biggest difference in a child’s scholastic success.


Addition and Subtraction
Our students and teachers have been diligently working with addition and subtraction. Real world examples can be found all around (driving in the car, at the grocery store, doing household chores, and counting money). Please help us to help your child with this concept and have fun in the process. Stay tuned for more ideas on how to work with your child in Mathematics.
Kinder: Addition and Subtraction up to the number 5 (as the sum or difference)
First: Addition and Subtraction up to the number 10 (as the sum or difference)

Welcome back to another exciting year of learning. Here at HES we will reach "Every Child Every Day"!
Fact Fluency
At HES we want to develop our students fluency and automaticity of basic math facts. We adhere to a systematic and balanced approach while focusing on conceptual understanding, math fact strategies, and the relationships between operations. This helps to ensure a strong foundation in math.
Parents these are Subitizing Cards that you can use with your child to help them to become better in BQD and AQD. Thanks for all you do to help our teachers in making sure your child is successful.
Here are some really neat shape dominoes. Make it a family night and help your child to be successful in Geometry ;-)
