Attached to the homework sheet today, is an explanation of the 3 ways your child has been taught to solve multiplication and division equations (equal groups, arrays, and open number line). It would be very helpful if you would ask him/her to demonstrate these methods for you. For example, you may want to ask your child to show you how to solve 4x6 using the open number line, or 20 divided by 4 using equal groups. Teaching another person is a very effective way to make new learning stick.
As always, I truly appreciate all you do at home to support and reinforce what your child is learning at school.
