This week we will be starting Topic 7: Multiplying by 2-Digit Numbers.  Your child will be multiplying larger numbers using arrays, mental math, rounding to estimate, and also using compatible numbers to estimate.  By using estimation in the course of everyday experiences and family activities, you can help your child understand estimation. 

Help your child understand that, when shopping, he or she can use estimation to figure out how much an item will cost. For example, if T-shirts cost $12 each, have your child estimate the cost of 4 T-shirts.

Thank you so much for supporting this year’s North Schuylkill Spartan Fun Run! The program was a huge success, and I know everyone had so much fun! There’s just one more thing left to do.

We need your help collecting all our pledges. As a class, we raised $1864.50 - our goal is to collect 100% of all pledges by 02/01/2018.

Pledges can be paid by credit card online on, cash, or check.

All sponsors that included their email address when making a pledge will receive an email reminder and instructions to pay their pledge. Please reach out to those sponsors who did NOT include their email address to let them know they can send cash or check to you, which will then be sent to school in your child’s collection envelope (coming home soon)!

Finally, please encourage your student to thank all their sponsors for helping our school!

Thank you again for your support! Let me know if you have questions.

This week we began Topic 5-Multiplying by 1-Digit Numbers.  We are also practicing our 0-9 facts.  In this topic we will learn methods to multiply two-and three-digit numbers by one-digit numbers.  By looking for patterns in multiplication facts, he or she can also multiply multiples of 10 by one-digit numbers using mental math.  Here are some sample patterns that your child is learning:
      4 x 5 = 20                        6 x 8 = 48 
      4 x 50 = 200                     6 x 80 = 480
      4 x 500 = 2,000                6 x 800 = 4,800

You can look for homework this week on Topic 5, Lessons 3, 4, and 5.  Also, fact corrections will be due on Wednesday and we will have a fact quiz that day as well.
