Mrs. Close’s Class – The kids continue to practice multiplying and dividing. We’ve worked our way up to dividing with a 4-digit dividend. A little challenging as kids work to keep all numbers organized and remember to bring down one digit at a time! Looking forward, the plan is to complete Module 3 before Thanksgiving break. You’ll find your child’s first CML competition in his/her Friday Folder. Next Tuesday will be the first MO competition!
Mr. Philipp's Class - This week, students were introduced to the area and perimeter formulas. They used given information to determine specific sides while comparing lengths and widths to similar rectangles. Students also were introduced to three strategies in solving two – digit by one digit multiplication problems – using a place value chart, partial products, and a “quick strategy” when using multiples of 10. Ask your child about each of these strategies. Also this week, Module 2 test was sent home. It was great to see the improvement from Module 1 to Module 2. Please review the test with your child, sign it, and return it on Monday.As always, please continue to have your child practice his/her math facts. They are crucial in helping your as he/she move through Module 3. Thank you in advance!
