During this first nine weeks we are working on various skills in the classroom.
Math -We are currently working on place value and what happens when we multiply a number by 10 and also by .1. We are reviewing multiplication with multiple digits and also long division using partial quotients and the standard algorithm. We are working to make sure we have our multiplication facts commited to memory as this is so important for all of math.
