MRS. SWOPE'S MATH/SCIENCE CLASS

Welcome to our 4th grade class at Fairview!

OUR SCHEDULE:

Block 1 (ELA/SS with Mrs. Garraway)
Special (Day 1 - Art, 2 - Music, 3 - Media, 4 - Wellness)
begin Block 2 (Math/Science with Mrs. Swope)
Lunch
Recess
Falcon Flyer
finish Block 2 (Math/Science with Mrs. Swope)


If your student is in my homeroom & would like to bring in a birthday treat on or near his/her birthday, please make it simple (for example, cookies). Due to block scheduling, the only time we have for this type of celebration is the last 5 minutes of the day. 

 Most evenings you can expect math homework that mimics the daily lesson & sets your student up for success on the Unit Test that follows each series of lessons, along with a practice test that precedes. If your child struggles with their homework, you may request a copy of the Student Reference Manual (SRB), available for at-home use on loan for the year. In addition, remember that the Family Letter distributed at the beginning of each unit provides answers to odd numbers on each home link. If your student is answering those correctly, chances are that they are answering most of the even numbered problems correctly too. Conversely, if a student is incorrectly answering them, they are probably answering the even numbered ones incorrectly too and may be a good candidate for the math workroom, a list of students that is developed daily for extra practice.

We will be working hard all year to meet the PSSA common core standards.  Study Island is a wonderful online tool that students can use at home to prepare.  I would encourage students to use caution when selecting math/science topics that I have already taught. If in question, students may click on the lesson link to review the test content before taking the quiz for the blue ribbon. Study Island access can be found on the Student Life link on the district's home page.  

The PSSA math & science testing window is as follows:

April 9 - 13, 2018 (ELA)
April 16 -20, 2018 (Math)
 April 23 - 27, 2018 (Science)


I know your lives are busy.  I thank you for being involved and making your child's education a top priority. Together, we do make a difference!
