(Dreambox Practice 15-20 minutes a day.)
This week (February 27th) in math we will continue Unit 6. This includes finding the area and perimeter, listing the multiples of a number, identify a number as prime or composite, listing the factor pairs of a number, identify lines rays and angles, classify triangles, as well as continuing fluency in addition and subtraction of four and five digit numbers as well as multiplication and division of four-digit numbers. A continuation of word problems that require multiplication and division will be explored as well. Every activity is based on preparing student for the upcoming Georgia Milestones Test in April.
