Please ask your student about the long division we are doing in class. We have been using the model D.M.S.B.R. – Dad divides, Mom multiplies, Sister subtracts, Brother brings down and Rover repeats to help us memorize the algorithm for long division. Students are finding long division quite challenging so if you can find time to practice at home, that would be a great benefit. There will be a quiz on Thursday for those who will be absent Friday, and a quiz Friday for everyone else. A homework sheet was sent home today to reinforce practice. Grade 4s should complete the entire sheet, grade 5s need to do the first eight questions on their worksheet.
