Math Notebooks-Multiplication, Division, and Word Problems

Here are some images from my math notebooks:

We revisited multiplication a few weeks ago. This time we talked about our strategies, the properties, some helpful songs and tricks, and then reflected on how we like to solve multiplication.

Then we revisited division for a week. We talked about the parts of a division sentence and our strategies for division. We also worked really hard on word problems that want us to divide.

Then we spent a week looking at the relationship between multiplication and division. This week last year was really hard and I expected a total disaster on my test last Friday (which was all word problems-some being two steps, and some having remainders). My students did incredibly well and blew me out of the water.

We are currently working on picture graphs and I will post images of our notebooks for them at a later date.
