Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome back from Thanksgiving Break! I hope you all had a restful and relaxing time with your family and friends.
We will learn about exponents and order of operations, and review multiplying/dividing 10,100,1000. We have done multiplication facts and division facts quizzes and drills in class. Please continue practicing basic math facts with your child at home.
This week assignments for Prodigy are practicing these skills:

- Multiply and dividing whole numbers by 10, 100, and 1000
We use Prodigy to practice math skills and concepts that we learned in math class. Please include Prodigy Math games in your child’s daily math homework routine for 20 minutes, or longer.
