Week at a Glance
I forgot to send homework in math tonight so PLEASE have your child sudy multiplication facts, play a multiplication game on line or just write their facts. Thanks!
Students have been learning and practicing different strategies to complete 2 digit times 1 digit and 2 digit by 2 digit multiplication problems and 2 to 3 digits divided by 1 digit. We will continue to practice adding and subtracting 2 to 4 digits with regrouping.
Homework will be a worksheet with a few problems each night practicing addition, subtraction, multiplication or division.
Keep working on multiplication facts. We will continue timed multiplication tests this week. Please have your child study the facts they are weakest in.

We do not have access to Lexia Core past what some have already finished. I have told these students that they may continue to read for Battle of The Books. Since they are held accountable for their reading during their Friday meetings and when they have their competition, they will not have a summary to write.
