It has been a very busy few weeks. We are working hard in class to build our community and work in collaborative groups. Continue to work with your child on multiplication fluency at home and make sure they read everyday. If you have not already please send in the permission for and payment for the field trip on the 14th.
Ideas: Have them read to you while you cook or while you’re driving in the car.
Today was a long day even though there was no testing. We spent a lot of time on “DIVISION”! As a class we are getting much better at solving multiplication problems and I was feeling pretty good about division. However, after a little quiz today (not for a grade) I found there is still a good bit of confusion. We will continue working on our strategies (repeated subtraction, fact families, sets & groups, inverse operation). Please encourage your child to practice their multiplication facts each night because that will help them also master division.

Today was a great Monday! We had such a packed day of testing, Arts Integration of Music, and starting a new Narrative writing. Ask your child what was their favorite part of the music we listened to in the classroom today or their favorite part of the music instruments.

Welcome back from an extended weekend. I was so relieved to see everyone back at school today after our terrible weather from Hurricane Irma. We had a great day back getting into the grove. We will continue with our IOWA Testing tomorrow, Friday, Monday, and Tuesday. I hope that everyone has a great night.
