This week in Literacy:

Students are continuing the EL unit about Frogs this week. We are reading and writing narratives through Poems and Pourquoi Tales about Frogs. I am loving the creativity that has come out as we explore the potential why behind some frog facts.

This week in Math:

We are back to multiplication and division strategies in unit 4 for the next several weeks. We are reviewing the strategies used in multiplication (Number line, repeated addition, skip counting, arrays, and equal groups drawings) and will also cover unknowns and the PROPERTIES for multiplication (commutative, distributive, and associative). We will continue to solve MULTI STEP addition, subtraction, multiplication and division through number lines, arrays, visual models, and more!  Multiplication/division will be the MAJOR focus on 2nd quarter. Memorization of facts is an expectation come January! May as well start prepping now! word-division

There are tons of great resources for this skill- please check some out here in this amazing math review resource organized by skill.
