Starting in January, we will begin fractions, Module 5. There will be a pre-test to identify students ready to move past fourth grade material.  As usualy, there will exit tickets given to assess progress, a mid module and end module. If all goes according to plan, the mid module test will be Friday, January 26th.
As a reminder, the students are expected to come to fourth grade knowing their basic X facts.  For those that do not, there will be remediation to help get them on track.   In school, we use Moby Max Facts which will keep track of the facts they already mastered and only give the facts they still need to work on. Students are able to access this at home.
Please save any work that comes home (there should be "Problem Sets" sent home every day) to help prepare for assessments.  There will be exit tickets taken for grades at random times to check on student progress, mid module  and end of module grades.  If your child is struggling, I will certainly know from the exit tickets, and have time planned during our week to meet with these students to help get them back on track.
We will begin our second unit of three this year.  This will focus on ecoysytems and fossils.  This comes with many labs and allows studnets to explore dinosaurs!  A high interest topic for fourth graders! January 5th we will fossilize a bone.  Please collect and clean fish or chicken bone over break.  It should be no more than 1.5 inches long and fit in a dixie cup.  Bones will not be returned.  If you can collect more than one for a student that doesn't have one, that would be great!
Unless your child has specific other instuctions, homework will be assigned on the computer, Monday-Thursday.  I firmly believe this homework will help them grow this year.  Moby Max is based on your child's individual learning level and will get harder as your child grows.  Thank you for supporting their education!
