Holiday Book Orders

Book orders were sent home on Monday and are due by next Tuesday, Dec. 4.  If you would like to order books to give to your child as Christmas gifts, you can order them online, and then let me know by text, email, or phone, and I will text or call you when they come in so that you can pick them up in the office.  A free book is earned with online orders of $25 or more!  You may click on the link below to order online!

The Process of Multiplication

We have begun multiplying 2-,3-, & 4-digit numbers by a 1-digit number using the distributive property (expanded form) and area models.  We viewed the videos below to help us understand how we use the values of the digits to multiply.  Ask your child to teach you how to do this type of multiplication.  If he/she can teach it to you, then you  know he/she has learned it!

Week of Nov. 12-16

Wed., Nov. 14- Fundraiser Party Bus to Chick-fil-a:  Students who qualified must have returned their signed permission form.

Next week, Nov. 19-23, we will be out for the Thanksgiving holidays!

Decimals

We have been learning about decimals in math.  Our study of decimals includes:

  • Representing decimal numbers (tenths & hundredths) using base ten blocks and money
  • Writing decimal numbers in standard, word, and expanded form
  • Comparing and ordering decimals through hundredths
  • Relating decimals to fractions (tenths & hundredths)
  • Determining decimals as points on a number line
  • Adding & subtracting decimals (including money)

Here are some links that your child can use to practice decimal skills:
