# GO 'FOURTH' AND LEARN

## PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCES

I enjoyed meeting with you during Parent Teacher Conferences! Your partnership in your child's education is so important to me! I appreciate you!

## MATH HOMEWORK

The students are doing a fantastic job completing their weekly homework. Each day the students are assigned 30 math problems in class. As the math concepts get more difficult the students might be bringing home more homework. Please assist your child with any questions they might have on their daily work.

Here are the lessons we will cover this week:

Monday - Lesson 76: Division with Three-Digit Answers

Tuesday - Lesson 77: Mass and Weight

Wednesday - Lesson 78: Classifying Triangles

Thursday - Lesson 79: Symmetry

Friday - TEST #15

Also, please encourage a few minutes of daily math fact practice! IXL.com is a fantastic website to sharpen those skills!
