Math- Unit 7 Test

We will be having a test over unit 7 on Friday. I will send home the study guide with the students tonight. Students are to complete these at home and bring them back tomorrow. Tomorrow we will go over these in class. Our next chapter will focus on area and perimeter.

ISTEP + Coming Soon!

In fourth grade we will take ISTEP + on English/Language Arts, Math, and Science. We will take part 1 starting in the first week of March. Part 1 is Applied Skills where they will have to answer questions on the computer by typing in their answers, no multiple choice. The exception is Math, which will be a pencil/paper test. We will be working hard to prepare for the tests. If you would like to see some examples of what the tests might look like you can go to this website http://fayettein.schooldesk.net/ResourceLinks/ISTEP+practicesites/tabid/84200/Default.aspx and click on the ones for grades 3-4. These are just practice sites so feel free to help your child. They do not work on google chrome browser. Let me know if you have any questions!

Tardies

We are starting to have problems with several students being tardy repeatedly. Students really need to be at school on time everyday. We start in with instruction as soon as announcements are over. I know that mornings are busy for many families, especially those that have several children to get ready and drop off at different places, but when your child is late they are missing important instruction.
