BEGINNING OF EACH 9 WEEKS:

At the beginning of each 9 weeks, I will send home a document listing each of the “I CAN” statements your child is responsible for learning this year.

END OF EACH 9 WEEKS:

At the end of each of the 9 weeks, you will receive that same paper listing the “I CAN” statements and how your child is doing with each so you are aware of where they stand with each of the standards they are responsible for.

 

NEW FOR THIS YEAR

Calendar Math

This year I will be implementing Calendar Math. Each class will begin with students completing a sheet that will reinforce, daily, skills that students commonly struggle with in Math. This will not be typical of calendar math students may remember from kindergarten. We will create a number of the day based on the date and students will have different tasks to complete with that number.

 

 

 

Math Binder

Each student will have a math binder that will stay in my room. This binder will be divided in to the 5 areas of Math and will include how students are progressing in the curriculum. They will have an “I CAN” sheet for each unit and it will be a work in progress. Occasionally, this may be sent home for you to review.

Centers

We will begin centers this year for students to rotate through to reinforce the standard we are working on. This will also give me an opportunity to work your child one on one, or in a small group setting, when they are struggling with a concept.

Corrections

Any work in your child’s Friday Folder that is graded and has mistakes on it will need to be corrected and returned on Monday. Students will receive a partial credit grade for corrected work.

Multiplication Facts

Students will be assessed on their fact recall of the multiplication facts 0-12 throughout the year. Please keep these fresh on students’ minds from 3rd grade by reviewing them for 5 minutes 2-3 times a week. Multiplication fact recall is so critical to the units students will work on in the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th 9 weeks.

 

Anytime you have questions or a concern you can call, txt, or send a message on the 4th grade Facebook page and I will see it. Let’s have a great year!!!!
