Fish in a Tree
We've shared our love of the book with a few classes who are now also enjoying reading it. After we finish the book and participate in a culminating activity each student will be able to bring their book home. Hopefully you will be able to read it too!
Multi-Step Math Problems
We're wrapping up our multiplication and going into some division skills next week.
All the students are doing a wonderful job with multiplication of larger numbers. We are practicing breaking the larger factors into "friendly" numbers to help make the multiplication easier. We will of course keep practicing this skill throughout the year.
It is definitely much easier to multiply larger numbers if you are fluent with your multiplication facts. Please encourage your child to keep practicing facts at home! They are completing timed tests on Schoology during RtI so we can track the facts mastered. They do not necessarily need to be the quickest, but they should have strategies that make them efficient with their facts. This will also be a huge help in division as we begin by discussing the relationship between multiplication and division. When they master the multiplication facts they will move on to division facts.
Service Learning Projects
October was Bullying Prevention Month
We were hoping to post on YouTube, but some videos contain full names so we shared them on Schoology instead. Please ask your child to show you their productions!
