Here's a look at what we're learning next week:
Math - Division
We will continue using different strategies like fact families, repeated subtraction, using a number line, and drawing groups to solve division problems. We are working on using Math vocabulary like divisor, dividend, and quotient when talking and writing about division. Please have your child practice their multiplication facts on a daily basis.
