Learning Support & Inclusive Education

Math Update and Leadership Info

on December 11, 2012

Math:

We have started multiplication in Math. The students have been given a copy of the multiplication chart. I am hoping that through regular math games and computer math games they will be memorizing these facts.  We have also been learning the Box Method for multiplication. This is a less complicated method for double digit multiplication. I will try to post a photo of the process (I’m a little technologically challenged!).

The students have been excited to use iPads with the app educreations to show their work. There is nothing new about this app, but it isn’t using a pencil and paper and this seems to have the students fully engaged! This app is free and if you have an iPad it’s worth downloading and having your child show you how to work it!

Leadership:

The leadership elves have been busy gearing up for Christmas. Please note the following  activities for Dec 17-21:
