Mr. Frederick's Math

Dear Parents of My Third Grade Scholars,
     Finally the long awaited Singapore Workbooks are here and every scholar has been given a copy. The students have been instructed that they can take the workbooks home every day in their agendas. However, they must make sure that they bring it to school each day. The pages that they are required to work on are written each day in the front cover. I will not over-assign pages and they should not work ahead of assigned pages.
     Again, I want to emphasize that multiplication is the key for third grade math mastery. I will teach several strategies for finding the answer if the student does not have the basic facts memorized. But, the sooner each student masters the basic facts, 1 x 1 to 12 x 12, the easier all other third grade math becomes. Practice, practice, practice.

Mr. Frederick
