Are you traveling this week or looking for something to do during your staycation? Here are some fun math games students enjoy playing in class that can keep them occupied in the car, airplane, or at home. (Some of these games will need 2-4 dice.)

# Our Houses

I have divided all of my classes into houses. Each house is trying to earn as many points possible. They earn these by good grades, awesome behavior, and outstanding character. At the end of the 9 weeks, the house with the most points will earn a nice treat. I’ll keep a total of the points on the blog.  Ask your child which house he/she belongs to.

• House of Epimoni (Perseverance)- 64
• House of Sofia (Wisdom)– 62
• House of Antochi (Endurance)– 60
• House of Afierosi (Dedication)– 62
• House of Isnosi (Knowledge)– 64

# OUR WEEK IN A NUTSHELL

4th– This week we will be learning the properties of multiplication and how they help us. We will also be learning the difference between factors and multiples. Students will be completing enrichment activities in their homerooms on Thursday and Friday while I am proctoring during testing. They will be having a test on Monday covering Chapter 3 in math books.

5th– This week we will continue dividing large numbers with multi-digit divisors. Due to the IOWA test later this week, math schedules may vary. We will be having a test covering multiplication and division next Wednesday.

## Week of September 3-7

OUR WEEK IN A NUTSHELL

Please continue to have them practicing their multiplication facts daily.
