Today the students and I discussed our heritage and why it is important. Tomorrow, they will be bringing home a project so that they can learn more about their own heritage. I will be providing all materials needed for this project, they just need to use their creativity in how they present the materials. I am very excited about this project and getting to hear about your home countries.
We finished up our multiplication facts through 12. We will continue to take our timed multiplication test each week, so they can make their ice cream goals. We will begin our study of the properties of multiplication, fact families, division, and how it is repeated subtraction. We will learn how to use pictures in division. Please make sure that your child has mastered all of their multiplication facts. Having them learn their multiplication will help them to completely understand division.
