Multiplication Fluency

   You can start practicing multiplication facts with your child.  We will start taking quizzes in October. In November, I want them to know 40 facts in four minutes. Each month, this number will increase by 10.    By the end of third grade, the students will need to know 95 mixed (1-12) multiplication facts in four minutes. 


 

Writing

We are working on our research paper.  If they are done with their research paper, they are working on a fictional story with a partner. You can look at their work anytime on google docs.
