At Macedonia Elementary School, we have a two-hour block of uninterrupted Numeracy time. During this time, we have direct teacher instruction, independent practice, small group time, and conferencing.
Multiplication is a BIG part of third grade. Students are required to MEMORIZE these facts. Timed tests will begin to be given in the month of September. To help students with memorizing these facts, we have made flashcards for each set of facts. It is best to "mix" the facts up when studying and not for the students to memorize them in a certain order.
