Multiplication Fact Practice

Thank you to you all for practicing the multiplication facts up to 10 at home! It is really helping to build confidence in the classroom with our new learning each day. We will begin to focus on division soon, so knowing the multiplication facts will help greatly! Thank you for your home support with this!
