!!! Multiplication in Math !!!
Recently we have been working on learning our basic multiplication facts for numbers up to 10x10. We have been using a variety of games, drills and quizzes to practice this core math skill. As some of you have been asking for extra practice materials that you can use with your children, I have provided the links below that I have found. I hope that you find these useful.
- Free Multiplication Drill Worksheets
- An excellent site that generates online quizzes, uses pictures and stories to teach multiplication facts, and has a number of games to help students
I will be adding to this list of resources over time. I would suggest that, if students have some free time over the March Break, they should spend some of it working on their multiplication skills.
!!! An Exciting Communications Opportunity !!!
During a recent staff meeting we were introduced to an exciting new communications tool. Remind101 is an online application that allows me to send out quick text messages or emails to people who wish to subscribe to the service. By using it, I would be able to quickly and efficiently send out messages such as "Remember that our class is going skating tomorrow" or "The field trip tomorrow is leaving at 8:30am". It would not replace my website as a communication tool, but would be a faster way for me to let you know important information. Please note that Remind101 is for communication out only. You will not be able to respond to any of the messages that you recieve. Also, please note that this service is to be used by parents only. Students will not be allowed to subscribe on their personal devices.
I would encourage you to sign up for this service if you are a fan of text messages or emails on your mobile device. Please be advised that standard text messaging rates will apply according to your mobile device contract. To sign up for my Remind101 please view the document below and follow the instructions to subscribe.
