Multiplying Fractions and Whole Numbers

Multiplying Fractions and Whole Numbers

The fraction multiplication journey continues — this week on to word problems. Encourage your child to read each word problem twice before attempting to solve it. Does the answer require a unit of measurement? (Dollars, cups, meters?) Have your child reflect as to whether or not an answer makes sense. Remember: a fraction of a whole number will always be less than the whole number!

Informational Writing: Summarizing and Paraphrasing

Summarizing and Main Idea

Introduce summarization by breaking down the key components. Encourage your child to set aside the text and pretend they are telling a friend about it; remind them to include only the main points. A summary should be like a snapshot of a vacation, including the who, what, where, when, and how — not a blow-by-blow account of everything that transpired. Videoclips and short films can also be an excellent introduction to summarization.
