Writing: Students continue to work on poetry and learn about various styles of poetry as well as the structure. 

Math:  Students are working on fractions with unlike denominators, mixed numbers and multiplying/dividing fractions.   We have spent time learning these during small groups.  We will be revisiting and building a deeper understanding of fraction skills. 


 Students will complete the weekly math IXL skills at school. 

   Students were given IXL skills in grades 3-7th for differentiation.   

                                           Has your child mastered their multiplication facts with automaticity?

     Students who have not yet mastered the basic multiplication facts are at risk of falling behind in 4th grade math.   Our topics lead into long division and fractions.  Mastery of multiplication facts is crucial to be successful in these future math skills. If your child is still struggling they should login to daily to catch up.  It's an additional 10-15 minutes of practice that will help your child meet and/or exceed the standards in 4th grade math.
