Gr. 4: Practice 2x multiplication tables
Gr. 5: p. 55 # 1-8 (T) In the computer lab today, we spent some time on times tables for both
grade 4 and grade 5. The objective is to start with the simple times
tables and work up to the harder ones. Students should aim for instant
recall. That is, when they see 6 x 3 they should instantly think 18.
There is no point taking the time to figure out what 6 x 3 is. They
should just memorize it. Flash cards (Indigo books, dollar stores,
etc.) work well, or you can do it online (free) at the site we were on
