We worked on fact families as a means for understanding multiplication and division. Sincewe have been working so hard on multiplication, we are now realizing that we can use it to solve division problems by simply working backwards. We built houses for our fact families consisting of 4 facts: 2 multiplication and 2 division. Students are really getting the hang of it and I am so excited to see their minds making the connections! We even made this wall of tons and tons of fact families...we have some fun!
Students worked on sequencing stories today with Mr. Featherston. It is important to recognize the events in the order that they happen so that optimal comprehension is obtained.
HOMEWORK: READING LOGS! MY READING GROUP: please complete your sequencing game cards.
We had a few things to get caught up on from math and then Mr. Andes came in and awarded Jesse for having such AWESOME BEHAVIOR THIS ENTIRE PAST WEEK! Jesse's name is now in a drawing to win an iPad mini! How cool is that?!? Way to go, Jesse...we are SOOOOOO proud of YOU!!!!!!!
