 We've been working on Geometry and Angles. Soon we'll be working on fractions. Starting out, we will work on equivalents and comparing. Like all 4th grade math, it requires lots of multiplying and dividing of facts. Thank you for helping your child with these skills!


Book Orders

  I'm sending out Book Orders today. They are due on Mar. 9.


  Our class will be having swimming lessons at Splash,  April 3-13. A swimsuit, towel and plastic bag will be needed for each student.  There are items available to borrow should they forget to brings theirs any day.


  Homework calendars for February should be in by now. We'll be testing multiplication facts this week and are looking forward to great improvement. Thank you for encouraging your child with homework.


   If your child is running a temperature, please keep them home. They need to be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school. If they are out more than 3 days, they will need a doctor's note. For further policy on when to send to school, click here (or see attached flyer).

Math Homework

      For the 20 minutes of math homework this month, do 15 minutes of mult/div practice daily and work for 5 minutes on these facts:
March: Area and Perimeter - Have child find the area of different 4-sided objects (length times width = Area). Then have them find the Perimeter by adding all 4 sides together.

Keep working on September's focus of inches, feet, yards and miles, October's focus of pounds, ounces and tons, November's focus on time, and December's focus on counting change from $10. In January and February, Metrics were the focus (Kilo, Hecto, Deka, Base, Deci, Centi, Milli).
