Third graders started their timed multiplication and division tests today. Our first level is X2 facts. Students have to complete all the problems (only missing 1) in 2 minutes to move to the next level. The next level will be divided by 2. In order for me to do a fast turn around on notifying students what level to study, I will only grade the tests that have a possibility of moving to the next level. If a student is stuck on a level, flashcards will be sent home for additional practice.
At home help: Please help me out at home by going over your child's test with him/her, checking the test that was just taken, and by practicing flash cards each night.
Thank you in advance for helping at home. Fact fluency is a very important skill for students to have mastered for fourth grade where they will solve multiple digit multiplication and division.
