now students should have these facts memorized: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 10. We will be learning the more difficult “hard facts”
between now and Christmas. By January,
all students should have quick and accurate recall of these facts.
please help your child take time each evening to practice the facts he or she
does not know. This is the foundational
year for learning multiplication, and spending time now learning these facts is
essential to your child’s success in math, not only this year but in future
Multiplication “Hard Facts” Due to knowing the commutative property, students should know that 7x8 is the same as 8x7. They have already learned most of their facts!
Due to the extremely hot weather, students will be allowed
to bring a water bottle to school. Please put your child’s name on his or her
water bottle. Also, a small snack will
be allowed after our morning bathroom break at 10:45. Snacks that are easy to
eat in class, such as chips, crackers, grapes, or carrots would allow students
to continue to work while snacking.
Please do not send candy or any messy or sticky snacks.
