Bursting with Pride! (Way to Go Students!)

We had a huge turnout for the Open House and it was a joy to see the children teaching their family members about the arcade games, as well as watching them laugh and play with them.

Our classroom arcade had 12 different games and all participants received a certificate for playing! It was a wonderful night to celebrate the creativity and imagination of the students in our classroom.

Thank you students! What a great start to the new school year!

Sincerely,

~Mrs. Hill~

MAKING ARRAYS AND MULTIPLICATION REVIEW

We are working on multiplication in class!

An array is a rectangular pattern of items arranged in columns and rows.

When we describe arrays, we write the number of columns first.

Therefore, this array would read 6 x 3!

Try the array activities posted here for additional practice.

A Game to Print and Try at Home: Racing Rectangles….click link below to print out the grid for playing.

http://mathgr3-5.pds-hrd.wikispaces.net/file/view/racing+rectangles.pdf

Racing Rectangles is a game that can help reinforce arrays and multiplication.  Students, working in pairs, take turns rolling two dice.  Each student must choose a different colored marker or crayon to use.  The student outlines and fills in a rectangle that matches what they rolled.
For example, if the student rolled a 4 and 3, that student would fill in a 4×3 rectangle on the grid.  The player then writes the total number of squares inside the rectangle.
A player loses a turn when his or her rectangle cannot fit on the game board.  Play continues back and forth until neither player can’t draw a rectangle.
Students count up their total of squares they colored.
The winner is the one with the highest number of squares filled in.
Here is an example of what a game board might look like…
