Have a great week!
Don't forget that we don't have school on Monday, January 19th in honor of MLK Day. We are continuing our study on multiplication. Your child should have brought home a multiplication flip-book to show some of the strategies we are using to help us solve them. Please ask your child to demonstrate of few of them! Here are the main ones we are using:
Have a great week!
I am so excited for this week! Not only do we have new math groups, but we get to continue our work with multiplication. We have been working with arrays for a few days and will begin repeated addition. I thought we would be able to start it last week, but time flew by and I ended up waiting until this week. We have been watching some BrainPop Jr videos to help introduce multiplication. If your child is struggling on their homework or if they would like to watch them again here is the link:

It's hard to believe Winter Break is already over! I hope you were able to spend time relaxing and enjoying time with your families. My family was sick a large portion of the time, but it was relaxing nonetheless. I did have some good news over break, as of right now I won't be needing surgery for my leg (yay!) and although I'm not in the clear things have been healing better the past few weeks. I hope for this to continue as I'd rather avoid surgery if possible! I will be out again on Wednesday as I have another xray and appointment for a new cast as well as getting my wheelchair repaired.
Today I was able to spend the day going over data and getting our classroom ready for the new year. It was very strange writing '2015' on the board (and I admit...I didn't write it correctly the first time!). This week I am looking forward to hearing where all of the students Flat Stanley's went on for adventures over break. Don't forget that and the How-To recipes are due on Thursday!! We will be having our potluck NEXT Thursday (Mrs. Jackson will be e-mailing more information about that later this week).
For math we will be starting my FAVORITE unit- multiplication and division! We will be practicing arrays and repeated addition this week and next.
In social studies we are sharing our Flat Stanley adventures! Each day a few students will have the opportunity to share with us their journal entries and show us on our large map where they went. I love hearing about all the fun things you did over break and look forward to all their adventure stories.
We also have a 'Destination Imagination' assembly this Friday. What a fun opportunity for students!
