Flexible Math Grouping

The fourth grade team has decided to flexibly group students for math stating this week. Flex grouping means that we asses how students learn best and group them to support their learning style as best as we possibly can. Last week students took a pre-assessment for fractions, the fourth grade team met to grade the assessments and discuss learning styles of all fourth grade students. Beginning on Monday, your student may be going to another classroom for math only. All homework will remain the same, what we are teaching will be aligned and planned as a team. As a result, your student will learn in his/her most comfortable way, hopefully leading to better understanding of math skills. We will constantly use weekly assessments or class work to regroup students. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me or call me.
