Week of September 10-14, 21018

This week in math we will continue working on place value. We are working on writing numbers in standard form, expanded form and notation, and word form. An example of this would be : 8,384 (standard form), 8,000+300+80+4 ( expanded form), (8x1000) + (3x100)+ (8x10) + (4x1) expanded notation, and eight thousand, three hundred, eighty-four ( word form).

Written homework will start this week. There will be approximately 5 problems each night to complete. Students should also continue to study their times table sheet that is in their blue folders. It is extremely important to have a strong knowledge of the times tables in order to be able to master the skills we will be working on this year.

Have a good week ! Stay dry!

Welcome back to school!

Welcome back to the 2018-19 school year! This first week we were busy learning our new schedule and classroom routines. Please remember to return all back to school paperwork as soon as possible if you have not already done so.

This coming week, September 4 - 7, my math classes will begin unit 1 in math. The topic will be place value. On Monday-Thursday, we will have approximately 5 math problems to complete each night. We will not have weekend homework most weeks. Knowledge of basic multiplication and division facts should be reviewed also each night as they are an important foundation for all of the new concepts we will be covering this year.

Have a great weekend and Labor Day!
