The kids’ homework folders are full of notes today! The 4th Grade Grading Policy & the multiplication fact note need to be signed and returned ASAP. The “Million Words” parent homework 😉 is not due until next Friday, Aug. 31. (The kids earn reward tickets when they are returned!)

I’m also asking parents to please enroll in my REMIND classes. I have two REMIND classes: one for my homeroom, and one for math. I use REMIND to keep parents informed about upcoming events, quizzes, etc. It’s also a great communication tool when parents need to change transportation methods or get messages to their kids. To sign up for Homeroom notifications, text the message **@hunter4hr** to the number 81010. To sign up for messages regarding Math, text the message **@hunt4math** to the number 81010.

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.
