  • Parent Orientation is Tuesday, Aug. 29, from 6-7pm in the cafeteria.  Everyone will meet first with Mrs. Rock and Mr. Camp, then we will break into grade-level groups.  Fourth grade will remain in the cafeteria.  This is an important informational meeting about the practices and procedures that are followed in the 4th grade.  Hope to see you there!
  • If you have not yet done so, please sign up for REMIND notices from all three of your child’s teachers.  It is a quick and easy way for us to communicate with each other.  Instructions were sent home last week, but if you need another copy, let us know.
  • Our first field trip will be Tuesday, September 12, to the Belcher Center on the campus of LeTourneau University.  We will be attending the show called MatheMagic!  Field trip permission forms will be sent home on Monday and will need to be returned as soon as possible.

Parent Homework was sent home today!  😉  Make sure to check your child’s homework folder for several notes:

  • Volunteer forms:  please fill out and return if you are willing to volunteer in any way
  • REMIND notes:  please subscribe to REMIND for each teacher so that you can easily communicate with each of us, and we can easily communicate with you.  (Mrs. Hunter, Mrs. McCurdy, & Mrs. Clift)
  • “A Million Words or Less” page:  This is a chance for you to BRAG on your child!  In a million words or less, tell us about him/her!  
  • Students will earn tickets when each of these items have been completed!

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.
