Quizlet Vocabulary Set 1

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.

 

Quizlet Multiplication Fact Practice

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.
