All students need to practice their basic math facts at home. We’ve started working on long division and I can already see many students struggling with the task. This won’t get any easier later on in your child’s school years and I recommend that they tackle it now rather than wait until Grade 6 or 7.
Mme Jorgensen has recommended a great site to me and I’ve enrolled all students in the program. The site can be found here. Feel free to look at some of their videos should you want more info.
Today in class, I will hand out PINs to everyone. The first placement tests take a bit longer (10-15 min) but after that, it will only require about 5 minutes of daily practice.
