We were able to accomplish a lot in October including our first 24 Math tournament for 2nd-5th graders. The Math Lab received 13 iPads at the end of last week and they are now set up and ready to be used to enhance the lessons we are doing in the lab. Thank you to all the parents for their generosity and to the foundation for their hard work in making this happen for our Pirates!
Here is what we are working on in the lab in November in addition to problem solving and writing constructed responses to go with our problem solvers.
Kindergarten: Decomposing(breaking numbers apart)
1st Grade: We will continue to look at 10 more, 10 less, 1 more, and 1 less on a hundreds chart
2nd Grade: Adding double facts and near double facts
3rd Grade: Subtracting double facts and near double facts
4th Grade: Double, double again when multiplying by 4 and Double, double, double a third time when multiplying by 8
5th Grade: Finish up dividing by 8 by Half, half again, half a third time and start working on adjusting both the dividend and divisor to make an easier division problem.
