Welcome to Ms. Whitus's Fourth Grade Class Webpage!
Reading Story:
Me and Uncle Romie
The BIG Idea:
We express ourselves in many ways.
Essential Question:
How would you make someone comfortable in a new place?

studio                                    yanked
concerned                              streak
model                                    schedule

Please, please, please make sure your child is reading EVERY night, even if they don't have their HRL. I cannot stress how very important your support is.

We need to READ to SUCCEED!!!
We have been working on lots of math skills these last few weeks! 
  • Place Value
  • Properties of Addition
  • Estimating/Rounding
  • Adding LARGE numbers
  • Subtraction LARGE numbers
  • and the dreaded
  • "Subtracting Across Zeros"
We will soon be moving into multiplication. The kids MUST know their multiplication facts in order to be successful this year, so please review with them at home. :)

The students all have a username and password for IXL.  It's a GREAT tool for practicing math skills at home.
