We have been working with these vocabulary terms since school started. If they haven’t already, the kids will be bringing home a bag of vocabulary cards that we will be adding to throughout the year. Our first test will be this Friday, September 6. Click on the picture below to practice the terms using Quizlet.
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.

|The 30 Day Math Fact Challenge:
We are challenging all of our students moving into 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades to practice their basic math facts in XtraMath for 30 days from May 25, 2019 to August 14, 2019! We have set up an XtraMath account for each student. All you need to do is log into your XtraMath Account 30 days and practice until the teacher says you are done. This will only take 10-15 minutes each day. Keep track and return your form to your teacher by August 23, 2019. Students who complete the challenge and return their form will earn an extra VIP recess, a Summer Math Challenge t-shirt, an ice cream treat, and recognition on our school blog!
