Mrs. Schwarzkopf's Newsletter
I will be sending home letters next week that discuss the importance of practicing multiplication facts and how we will go about quizzing every week to make sure we get our 0-11 facts down. Next weeks newsletter will provide you with some tips on this.
Tuesday they will receive their Math homework, which is also a review for their test on Friday. Above this homework section I have placed images of the problem solving strategies that students have been taught. They use part part whole to determine if they they are adding or subtracting and the UPS check to breakdown the problem and check their answers. I also added an image of our work for adding and subtracting on a number line. This concept was a bit more difficult, but the main focus that we spoke about was when you add you jump forward. When you subtract you start with the big number on the right, then jump back to arrive to your answer.
Hypothesis due: October 19
