Carroll's Class Happenings
All Things 4th Grade
3rd Quarter Reading Requirements
We will begin our fraction unit and spend several weeks using fractions. Students are required to know fractions with the denominators of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10,12, and 100. Students will start with decomposing fraction. (Ex: 5/8 can be decomposed as 1/8 + 1/8 + 3/8). We will then move into equivalent fractions. With this unit will be doing several hands and real world lessons. Fractions are one of most favorite things to teach.
Tip: Have your child help you cook or bake at home. Being familiar and comfortable with measuring cups is huge advantage to understanding this concept!
Old Salem Field Trip
If you need help with part or all the expenses please let me know as soon as possible.
Field trip papers will be going home on Monday. We will need 5 chaperones for our classroom, but all parents are welcome to attend. Chaperones are responsible for their own admission and transportation. All money and forms are due back to me by February 12.
