I have decided to add our Problem Solving problems to my plan for this week. I will not add them until the end of each day. The kids really enjoy these challenging problems. They are forced to THINK and BE problem solvers! I call this intense brain exercise. Parents: I encourage you to solve them, too!

This week we are continuing on with multi-digit multiplication and moving into division with one and two-digit divisors. SCARY! :o)
