Divide, multiply, subtract, compare, bring down and repeat! These are the words that we have been using daily in Grade 4. We are working on our long division! Another way to remember is that the divisor (number outside the house/bracket) is knocking on the door to the dividend (number inside the house/bracket) and asking if it can come in and how many times. When we find out how many times we put it on the roof (top line of the bracket) to get our quotient/answer. Sometimes we even have a number leftover which is our remainder. Hopefully, remembering the steps or the story will help each student! Don’t forget to brush up on multiplication and division facts and play First in Math too!/ Mrs. Sigler
Just what impact does business and economics have in our United States? That question was answered for our seventh graders in a very informative presentation on April 16 by Ms. Kim Lytle. Junior Achievement Works was the topic of her program. Some of the favorite activities of the day were the Who Am I? Game, the U.S. Boomtown Businesses, and the Strike – It – Rich Game. Newspapers, the U.S. Postal Service, and methods of communication didn’t just happen as our students began to realize. The Immigrants to our country worked long hours on farms and in factories to build successful communities. What our country is today is a result of their imaginative and innovative thinking. Thank you, Ms. Lytle for your creative and fun activities. “It was a pleasure to do ‘business’ with you.”/ Sr. Martha, C.D.S.
