Curious about graded assignments??

Check the "GRADES" tab in your child's binder to see the assignment!

*Papers will also come home on Tuesday's in their take home folder*

Math News:

Please be patient when you see the work that comes home. Your child is learning some awesome new & different ways to solve problems (ways that you may not understand), but I promise, they will learn it the "basic" way as well!! If you have any question please don't hesitate to conference with me & I'll be happy to show you the super cool things we are working on. :)

PLEASE continuously practice Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, and Division at home!! The majority of what we do in 4th grade is based on those 4 operations. Every year, we see struggles with subtraction (regrouping) and multiplication facts. Please help us close those gaps and build a strong foundation.

Math Vocabulary:

Each unit will have a set of vocabulary words that students will need to study on their own to be quizzed on. A list of these words and definitions can be found in their binder behind the MATH tab. At the top of each page there is a link to study at home through a website called Quizlet. Check it out, it's very helpful!!
*Vocabulary quizzes are matching: word to definition. These are averaged together for a major grade.*
