Math News from Mrs. Allison
Math in Room 17!
To begin the year, we dive right in to multiplication! We have been working on learning all of our facts from 0-10. Please practice facts with your child often. We have 1 minute multiplication drills 2x a week, and we are working toward becoming multiplication masters! All who have become masters will have a pizza celebration party in November. So far, we have done our 0,1,2,5,9, and10s. Next week will be 3s and 4s. The week of Oct 19, 6s and 7s. The week of Oct 26th, 8s and doubles facts. Special honors go to all students who also demonstrate mastery on 11s and 12s!
Here are some key words for the unit: array, zero property, identity property, commutative property, factor, product, fact family, distributive property.
