Our school year is almost finished. As you think back to your school year since you began your grade, back in September, what is something you accomplished this year that you are proud of? What is something at the start of the year that was hard, but that is easy now?

How do you do this? It’s so hard. Does anybody know 7 x 9? I know: 63.

At the beginning of the year, I couldn’t do simple multiplication. Now I am so happy that I can. I can even do two by two multiplication and two by one, three by one (and so on). Multiplication is way easier than it was at the beginning of the year!

I’m so happy I know how to do multiplication!

6 x 7 : I immediately shoot up my hand and said “42.” The teacher said “correct, Jack!”
