We will have an afternoon snack time, so please send healthy snacks with your child if you wish him/her to have a snack in the afternoon.  It will be their choice to have a snack or not each day, and not all children choose to have one during this time, so your child may come home with the snack you’ve sent!   Thank-you!

Things you Can Do at Home
Learning multiplication times tables is a great way to set the foundation for upper grade math! Check out these ideas for practice or review of multiplication at home!
Flashcards– have your child make their own multiplication flashcards to help those times tables stick in their minds!
ABCYA.com gamehttp://www.abcya.com/clear_it_multiplication.htm
Bottle Cap Flip-use bottle caps from water bottles or glass soda bottles and put a dot sticker on each side. One side label with a multiplication problem and the other side label with the answer. Students have to correctly answer the multiplication problem to “flip” the cap and keep it. The player with the most bottle caps wins!
Multiplication War– Use a deck of cards. Flip over two cards and multiply the numbers. The person with the highest product wins the round and keeps the cards. The player with the most cards at the end is the winner!
