GRAMMAR /VOCAB.We will be working on past-tense verbs and how to use commas to separate words in Grammar this week. We will also be working on writing Thanksgiving stories!

MATH We are continuing to work on our multiplication unit in math.  This week, we will be working on the distributive property, the associative property, multiplying by 7 and 8, and using a multiplication table to find patterns that will help us learn our facts.  Next week I hope to look at multiplying by 9 and problem solving with multiplication!

Keep working on those Multiplication Sundae slips! We have added a few more bowls to our board, and one student is very close to earning that cherry on top!
