This week we started two very important units. In math class, our focus shifted to the beginnings of multiplication. Students learn this math function using the area model, or array model. This is different than how multiplication used to be taught when I was in school, but trust me, as the numbers get bigger and bigger, it is a tool that students will use and return to all year long.
Remember that we will be heading to Clifford Park to study crayfish on Thursday of next week. Please make sure that your child dresses in layers as it can be chilly in the mornings. If any parent is interested in joining us, please let me know. We'd love to have you along.
