It's going to be a great week!  In math 5th grade will begin multiplication of larger numbers using the standard algorithm.  Sounds simple, but takes a lot of practice.  4th grade will be discussing factors and multiples and will then be moving to multiplication.  They will be learning a few different algorithms for multiplication.  Their next topic is division.  It is very important that 4th graders know their multiplication and division facts by heart.  They must be fluent to multiply and divide multi-digit numbers. Both grades are continuing with ecosystems in science.

We have two very social groups this year.  Please emphasis to your student the importance of staying focused and on task in class rather than looking for opportunities to socialize with friends.  We also have several students who like to make noises and "beat" on their desks.  There's nothing wrong with being active.  I strive to keep lessons hands-on and to give students the option of moving and working around the room, but students must stay on task and not disrupt the learning of others.

A great big Shout Out to Charlotte, Amy, Victor A. and Wes for being our Math Rules top point earners.  Great Job guys!
