We have taken advantage of both the computer lab and the Chromebook carts every day this week. Having portable devices to bring into our classroom has made such a difference. Thank-you to everyone who supported the Winter Carnival last year. Watching the children use the technology is the classroom just warms my heart!
We also found time to squeeze in a grammar lesson. Grammar Rule #11 introduced the children to the term possessive pronoun.
We also looked at arrays as another way to represent multiplication and division equations. Students can visualize the product ( total amount of objects) and also see the different ways to make equal groups. It helps reveal both multiplication and division equations for a number.
