In math, we started Unit 2, which will focus on multiplication. I will give the students a baseline multiplication facts quiz on Monday to evaluate each student’s automaticity with their 2-10 facts. We will make flashcards of the facts that students need to practice, and most will need to review for 5 minutes a day over the next few weeks. There will be a reminder of this on the purple sheet.
I will introduce our spelling groups and routines on Monday and we will practice all the ways to review words in school this week. This will become a regular homework routine the following week.
Students investigated landforms this week in social studies and I explained the landforms project to them on Friday. They have the materials needed to complete this assignment and have 3 weeks to work on it. (It is due October 27) We will discuss how to plan their time and each step during the next 2 weeks.
We would love to have some parents help with math games on Fridays, 11-12! Please sign up on the Google sheet above. If you have trouble using Google Sheets, you can email me a Friday date and I will sign you up.
Ask a Fourth Grader…
* Which state did you write a postcard to?
* How did Roz end up on an island? Do you think she will survive?
* Which 4 landforms are you going to pick for your landforms project? What are you going to use to make a 3-D model?
* How confident do you feel about your 2-10 multiplication facts?
