4th Grade Math & Science
Martellaro & Grobe
This week we will be learning many strategies to solve for the nine times table.
Please encourage your students to study their facts for 10-15 minutes a day!!
In case you missed this previously:
Here are some ideas to practice facts at home:
-Have your student make a set of flash cards using note cards or construction paper.
-Quiz them in the car (or during any down time) over random facts from 0-12
-If you have a deck of playing cards at home ask your student to show you how to play "Spiral Multiplication." It's really fun!
Prefer to use technology? There are also a lot of great apps and games on the computer to help with facts too!
Try some of these:
-Hooda Math Flash Cards (app), they also have a lot of online games.
-Big Brainz- a virtual computer game game (costs money for the full version, but there is a free trial) It also has addition and subtraction in bets right now if you have younger kiddos
-Know Your Math Facts App- free on iTunes
-Rocket Math- $.99 on itunes
-Multiplication Training- free on itunes
-Times Table Quiz- free on itunes
-Sushi Monster- free on iTunes
And I'm sure there are tons more! Let me know if you find any good ones that I can use in the classroom and I will let you know if I find some good apps or computer games:)
*This week we will have our Science District Assessment on Tuesday. I will be sending home a study guide for them to review over the weekend and Monday night. Please make sure your student gets enough sleep the night before the test and a good breakfast the day of.
