Something a little different tonight for homework. The grade fives have been working for about a week on long form multiplication, practicing multiplying three digits by two digits. So the homework for tonight was to practice this at homework with a worksheet. The grade fours, meanwhile, have just been introduced to simple division and learning how to use a multiplication chart to find answers to simple division problems. (This process helps to accent the mathematical relationship between division and multiplication.) The grade fours also have a practice sheet to do tonight. Students were also reminded that we have a “mock” spelling test tomorrow. BTW – We have begun a new Science unit, on Weather. Ask your child to tell you what wind really is!!
