Mrs. Reeg's Math Class News

Week of October 5, 2015

This Week In Math:

This week in math we reviewed our skills on long division using the division family to assist us (Dad, Mom, Sister, Brother, Rover and Chester). We practiced both our multiplication and division within story problems. We took a quiz week on powers of 10, multiplication and division. We finished off the week with an introduction to the order of operations. All of next week we will be working on the order of operations, moving slowing into solving problems with parentheses, brackets and braces. Next Wednesday we are looking forward to working in Math Centers with Mr. Hurtack, our Gifted Intervention Specialist and Mrs. Tatarunus, our Technology coach. Below I have included a video from Math Antics on the order of operations.

It's SOCKTOBER month!!

Sterling Morton is joining forces with Kid President to celebrate SOCKTOBER! Together with kids all over the country we will be collecting new socks for the homeless. Please help us by sending in socks with your child, or drop them off during Parent/Teacher conferences. We will also be selling Smencils during conferences to raise money for the homeless.

States Quiz is coming soon!

Check out this great website for your child to study for their States quiz with Mr. L. FYI - it will not run properly on an iPad.
