**NOTE:  Many students need to continue practicing their multiplication facts!!!  This allows them to become proficient with computation of larger multiplication problems and ease their ability to divide numbers. Students must have a firm knowledge of multiplication and division facts and how to apply those facts in other mathematical situations.

HOMEWORK:  Homework will be given most evenings, M-Th. There will be some facts practice, problem solving, and review of that days lesson. All homework assignments are due the following day unless noted by the teacher.
        If your child needs help, please feel free to help, but please let me know if they had a great deal of trouble on an assignment. Homework should take about 40 minutes to complete if distraction free. Students will need to refer to their B.O.B.(Bush Organized Binder) for nightly homework. It is the responsibility of the student to record daily assignments on his/her homework planner.
