What do I do at home?
Read EVERY night. Find a good book and READ, READ, READ!! You should read for at least 15-20 minutes every day. Make sure you are not reading something that is too easy or too hard. If you need books, let Ms. Damschroder know.
Practice memorizing multiplication and division math facts. if you need flash cards, let Ms. Damschroder know. Students--you must memorize all basic multiplication and division facts before the end of the year. Many students are struggling with facts. Practice your facts EVERY NIGHT!

A note about math
Timed Multiplication Tests
Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8 × 5 = 40, one knows 40 ÷ 5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all products of two one-digit numbers.
