Math - Newsletter

We are reviewing Least Common Multiple and Greatest Common Factor from Module 2 as well as beginning Module 3, which focuses on fraction division. If your child struggles with division or multiplication, it would be wonderful to work on those skills at home with them This week since it is a short week, there will be no math homework. However, in the future If students have any questions about their homework, they can bring it in on Friday for help and support. If you have any questions regarding math please feel free to reach me on ClassDojo or by email.
