For your information-

Multiplication flashcards:
Today we started our math unit on multiplication. We have started with the 5s facts. In your child’s daily folder will be a parent letter and an envelope with flashcards. We will be filling this envelope with flashcards. It should go home for nightly practice and be sent back to school each day as we will use the flashcards in class.
***It is very important to make fact practice part of your nightly routine. We will be learning a lot of multiplication facts and they will be crucial to know as we move on in math concepts this year.

Spelling Words:
We started our spelling work today. Each Monday, we will take a pre-test that will determine the word list for each student. During the week we will use activities to practice the words and the spelling concept. On Fridays, we will have a spelling test. It will be important to practice these words at home during the week. One of the best ways to do this is to write them out in sentences. I also have spelling activities linked to the right side of the blog. Spelling City is a great one!
