In third grade, there is a strong emphasis on learning multiplication and division facts. Starting in January, students will be required to practice one times table per week. It will be assigned Monday and the timed test will be given on Friday. Students are expected to study throughout the week. Parents, I encourage you to make this fun and enjoyable for your child. Some ideas to practice math facts: make flash cards, informally quiz your child while grocery shopping/driving in the car/ making dinner, etc. Here are some great websites for students to go to to practice their facts.
