*Check their agenda daily and make sure they are completing their weekly homework-assigned Monday, DUE Friday
*On Thursdays, make sure your child is studying and looking over their Math 4 Today, especially any that they had difficulty with. We do 4 boxes a day and check at the beginning of our block.*** The actual weekly quiz is on the back of our daily Math 4 Today. I hope this is helping students study more carefully. They need to be reviewing those problems that they have not mastered.
*If you have internet access have your child log onto his/her account and practice math fact fluency and math skills tailored to your child’s strengths and weaknesses
*If you have and iPad- a great app I have found is the Go Math 4th grade. It is $1.99 but is a great practice tool to use.
*http://www.worksheetworks.com/ allows you to personalize certain skills to practice.
*Another fun site to practice math on is http://mrnussbaum.com/math-for-kids/
