We are getting ready to begin our focus on division. We will build an understanding for division by using manipulatives to divide groups and share equally. Then we will focus on division as repeated subtraction to reinforce the understanding behind why we divide.
This week we will also begin having "Number Talks". Number talks are ways to help our young mathematicians build mental math and computation strategies by having 5-15 minute class discussions around numbers and math sense.
