Thursday, Sept. 21- Fall pictures will be taken.  Ordering information was sent home yesterday.

Also on Friday, the multiplication fact re-test will be given.  I will take the highest grade scored from last week test and this week test.  Students who score below a 90 will receive a homework packet of fact practice pages the next week.

Math Learning Goals and Important Info for the Week of September 4-8

Reminder:

$5 for the field trip is due this Friday, September 8th.

Math Learning Goals:

  • Students will continue to read, write, and expand whole numbers through the billions place.
  • Students will learn that the place value is 10 times the position to the right and  1/10 of the place to the left.

For example:  16,649    The 6 in the thousands place is ten times the value of the 6 in the hundred’s place.

The 6 in the hundred’s place is 1/10 the value of the 6 in the thousand’s place.

Math Homework:

Please study your 4’s, 3’s , 5’s  2’s and square multiplication facts.  We have a Multiplication Quiz Friday, September 8th. 

Math Learning Goals and HW for Aug 28th -Sept 1st

Math Learning Goals:

  • I can describe the relationship between two place-value positions. * 10 times as much  or  * one-tenth of

Example:  6,643  The 6 in the thousands place is ten times as much as the 6 in the hundred’s place.

The 6 in the hundred’s place is one-tenth the value of the 6 in the thousand’s place.

  • I can read, write, and expand whole numbers through the billions.

Multiplication Facts

The majority of math-related stress in 4th grade students comes from the lack of knowledge of the basic multiplication facts.  It is EXTREMELY important that students become fluent in their facts so they can concentrate and spend time on the process of HOW to solve a problem, and not just spend all of their time trying to do the computation of the problem.

Below are some practice links to Quizlet.  Clicking on a link below will allow many options to practice a set of facts:  Flashcards, Learn, Test, Scatter, & Space Race.
