Welcome to the News page!

We will begin the year with Unit 1, focusing on many skills which build on previous learning from 3rd grade.  We will study place value, rounding, addition, subtraction, estimation, and geometry.  

Important Information-
HOMEWORK- Students will bring home worksheets called "Homelink"s Monday-Thursday. Students will not have math homework over the weekend.  Students will also have 50 Math Facts to practice each night.
FAMILY LETTERS- At the beginning of each unit, students will bring home a Family Letter which includes an overview of the unit, important vocabulary terms (there are many in Unit 1), activities to do at home, and answers to odd homework problems.
STUDY ISLAND- Study Island is a great online tool to use at home to help practice skills taught in class.  I will assign students topics for the skills we have discussed in each unit.  Students can view an online lesson and answer questions pertaining to each skill using Study Island.  By answering at least 70% correct in each skill, students will also earn Blue Ribbons, which will be rewarded in school.  In addition, there are game modes in Study Island where students can play short games if they answer questions correctly.
