For the remainder of the year, we will be using our new knowledge to problme solve in groups. Grades will be computer based, reviewing all fourth grade concepts.
Zearn will always be a resource you can use at home. It will help reteach material we are learning in class. The students know how to log in and like to do it.
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.
Math homework: Monday-Thursday, 20 minutes of Moby Max Math. I will periodically check the students are doing it. Although it will not count for points, if a student is borderline between grades, I will take homework into account.
There are three units of study in fourth grade science. We have begun our third unit, Electricity. Most of the work will be completed in class. We should be ready for both the Lab test and the traditional test April 11th. A study guide was sent home April 2nd.
We will have student teacher in our classroom every Wednesday and Friday until sometime in April. She is learning to be a teacher and is in her "field experience." She will teach five lessons, most likely in science. If your child is telling you about her....it's true!
