Welcome to the 2017 - 18 school year! Fourth grade is an exciting time for children to become more responsible and take greater ownership of their learning. 

       I expect homework to take no more than 30 minutes each night. Please let me know if your child is struggling to meet that expectation so I can provide help and support. In addition, if there is ever a time homework cannot be completed please jot me a note so your child and I can make a plan. There are many opportunities for students to enrich or extend their learning with challenging work. Students can search Khan Academy (http://www.khanacademy.org/), choose an Olympiad, get problems from NCTM site (http://illuminations.nctm.org/), or from the Dr. Math website http://mathforum.org/dr/math/.

On the interactive web sites tab, I've included many links which correspond with our program. There are lots of opportunity for practicing and reviewing all math skills and concepts on IXL (https://www.ixl.com/signin/marioncross). I also recommend the Math is Fun site (http://www.mathsisfun.com/) - a wonderful resource for math definitions, games, puzzles, activities and forums for students and parents. Looking forward to a fun and productive year!
