Learning Updates!

As the first semester comes to a close, we are laser focused on learning all skills needed to be successful in life and proficient on the MAP test! Currently we are working on fluently multiplying and dividing within 100. You can help your child with this by reviewing their flashcards with them nightly! I know that with all hands on deck and all of us working together for your child, they WILL be successful! Below you will find a checklist of skills to master by the time your child reaches 4th grade:

  • Multiply and divide numbers up to 100 and understand the relationship between multiplication and division.
  • Understands the commutative property of multiplication (5x3=15 and 3x5=15).
  • Solves word problems that require two steps and more than one mathematical action. For example: If Scott has 9 cupcakes and 12 candies, how many cupcakes and pieces of candy can he give to 3 people so that each person has the same amount?
  • Rounds numbers to the nearest tens or hundreds.
  • Adds numbers up to 1,000
  • Understands and creates fractions and uses number lines to represent and compare different fractions.
  • Solves problems involving time and measurement.
  • Creates and uses graphs to represent data and answer questions.
  • Learns about shapes (specifically quadrilaterals) and their features.
  • Learns about and calculates the area of an object using multiplication and addition (specifically by multiplying the lengths and sides of an object).

Celebrations!

We have been making tremendous strides in Math! The students are thriving in our smaller class sizes and blending learning environments. They come to school every day focused and ready to learn. Keep up the great work!
