October Calendar & Newsletter

Saturday, September 26, 2015

I posted the October specials calendar on the Calendar page and finally posted a newsletter on the Newsletter page.  I apologize for not posting a September newsletter.  Time definitely got away from me, but I promise to not let it happen again! :)  Enjoy!

Learning to Multiply

Last week we moved from learning to identify the area of a shape with repeated addition into making arrays to learn how to multiply.  Using skip counting on a number line, students worked in pairs to identify all the multiples in a number (3.OA.1) and placing them on a 100's chart.  By digging deep into multiples, students are able to process multiplication without having to rely on memorization.
