Many of you will notice on your student’s Weekly Report today, that we are still struggling with multiplication. I have been talking with our Resource Teacher about ways to help our class improve.
We have decided that we need to continue on to the next chapter in order to stick with the district pacing guide, but will review some multiplication problems each day. On Monday, she will be coming in to teach the first lesson of our next chapter on division. We are also going to restructure my math block so that all the students are split into two groups. Starting Tuesday, I will teach one group the math lesson, while the other half of the class does multiplication review. Then we will switch groups. I hope it will help having the students split up, because some of the difficulty comes with the students talking so much while I am teaching.
Some ways you can help at home are:
- Daily quiz your student on 1-digit multiplication facts using flashcards.
- Have your student go onto MobyMax.com to practice their math facts. (Search for Karl Kellogg School in Chula Vista).
- Have your student go onto the Go Math website to practice more review problems. This website can be found on the district website under the student section- cvesd.org
