The 2019 Summer Math Fact Challenge forms will be sent home with the 4th grade awards. Be sure to look for yours!
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 andreturn their form will earn an extra VIP recess, a Summer Math Challenge t-shirt, an ice cream treat, and recognition on our school blog!
We will be working with stem and leaf plots, dot plots, and frequency tables beginning Monday, December 17th. We are asking that each student bring a bag of Skittles to school by that Monday. We will be doing fun activities with the candy. Please make sure it is the NET WEIGHT of 2.17 oz. and the original Skittles.
We have begun multiplying 2-,3-, & 4-digit numbers by a 1-digit number using the distributive property (expanded form) and area models. We viewed the videos below to help us understand how we use the values of the digits to multiply. Ask your child to teach you how to do this type of multiplication. If he/she can teach it to you, then you know he/she has learned it!
