Math Night on Thursday

What You Really Need to Know

Learn How to Multiply in Just One Hour

Just Kidding. However, tomorrow night (Thursday) we will hold a math night in the library from 6 to 7 p.m. The fourth grade teachers will show you how we will be teaching the students math this nine weeks. Right know, in your mind, you are thinking that you already know how to multiply. I was there myself a few years ago when my daughter was in fourth grade. When she came home and tried to explain to me the Area Model or Partial Product, I told her she was doing it the wrong way and to let me show her how to do it the right way.

Please don't do what I did. If you cannot come to the meeting tomorrow night, there will be online videos (starring me) in the coming week that you can watch to better understand how we are teaching multiplication. And yes, they will eventually learn to multiply the way we did.

I will be sending home a copy of the documents for tomorrow evening. If you are unable to attend and would like a copy of the notes sent home with your child, just shoot me an email.
