Grade 4: Mathematics
Instructor: Karikas   
Announcements
Happy 2017!!!!
In math we are working on many various strategies to multiply multi-digit factors together.
This will quickly turn into long division and then we will finish the school year working mainly with geometry and fractions.














we are focusing on place value and regrouping to add and subtract.
We will be moving on to factoring and multiplication very soon.

Every Thursday a homework assignment is given.
That assignment is either a POW or mathboxes and due the following Tuesday.

There is a math quiz every Friday.


















Please have your child watch.
Please have your child watch the following link if they are having diffidculty with multi-digit times multi-digit multiplication.  We have been working on it in class and most children have it mastered; however there are a few strugglers, and I feel that reviewing this 'how to' video may help with their confidence.

Don't forget that MATH BOXES are due each Wednesday and POW is due each Friday.

 

Did you know that your child has been working to balance a check book?

In class we have been taking a check registry, subtracting written checks and adding deposits, comparing this to a bank statement and verifying the balance?  It’s amazing what your kids have learned about car banks, payments, rent checks as well as balancing a budget during this mini-lesson!

 

 

Monday:  We’ll work with perimeter.

·          

*HOMEWORK: rounding practice with multiplication problems

 

Tuesday:  POW

·          

*HOMEWORK MATH BOXES due tomorrow

 

Wednesday: POW

·          

*HOMEWORK:  POW ‘wrestling night’-due Friday
 

Thursday: (POW hint day)

·          

*HOMEWORK: POW due Friday

 

Friday:  multiplication practice/’at the circus’ activity

 

*HOMEWORK: MATH BOXES due Wednesday




I appologize for not updating this recently.
Last week a blue half page describing our newly aded 'math box' homework assignments.  A new page of mathboxes has been given to the children Tuesday mornings since school began.  Children work on completing these pages that should reinforce daily REVIEW between Tuesday and Thursday mornings.  By Friday afternon the children should have gone over and made corrections to what they have completed independently in class and the backside of the paper will come home as homework, due Wednesday.  Compltion of the back should be just like what we have completed in class and will allow the children to review basic skills that they should have as fourth graders.  

This assignment will not interfeer with the previously established POW homework.

Since we have not worked with fractions as of this date, I have told the children that if the are not familiar with fractions they need to TRY the related lines in the math boxes.  I will give them the answers in class, and this will help them to complete the homework.  


Please make sure your children are practicing their multiplication (and division) facts at home.  This will clearly help a lot as we progress through this unit.  The back of the reading log is where you should document the 2-3 times per week that your child practices (with flashcars, online, or in any manner).








 
This week's schedule continues the same as the past weeks.
We are still focusing on place value and how the ZERO effects mutliplication and division with large numbers.

As we estimate, we should round to 'nice numbers' with zeros in important places to make figuring our answer more easily.

We're working on related Study Island tests during computer class.

Monday:  We will continue to focus upon the value of numbers as we estimate and round them.

·         Rounding strategies differ based on addition, subtraction, multiplication or division.

Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year!


Please try to bring your family to our open house Wednesday evening. I'm excited to met you all!



Monday
:  Labor Day

·           

Tuesday:  POW: Problem of the Week 
Each week we will be introduced to a different math strategy as we work together with our POW.  You will be able to access tips to solve the various POWs on-line.  This will help the children complete the POW that will be assigned each Wednesday and due on Friday. 

We will find multiples of 4 to han on our multiple tree and we will create some equations to easily get us to 1000.

·          

*HOMEWORK "If 9 is an apple on our 'multiple tree,' what would the possible answers that will hang from our tree?"

 

Wednesday: This is day 2 of our POW and math strategy of the week.  This problem is very similar to the HOMEWORK that will be due Friday.

·          

*HOMEWORK:  POW: Tonight is 'wrestling' night. MAKE A PLAN as to how you will tackle the POW that is due on Friday.  Don't forget that I will give 'HINTS' to help you solve this in class tomorrow.
 

Thursday: HInt day to answer any questions about the POW that is due tomorrow.

Various activities to work with place value as we build 1000 and relate multiplication strategies to get increase our numbers.

We're in the home stretch now.

We're not finished with fractions, but we've been working on calculating improper fraqions equivalent to mixed fractions as well as reducing fractions to their simplest forms.

We've also been working on decimals and how/why they are equivalent to fractions.
 
Thursday we will have our final quiz covering fractions and decimals

We've finalizes our AIMSWeb asesssments and this week will complete our final MAPING assesments.

This Wednesday after our field trip representatives from each of the fourth grade classes will be performing at our first annual LAF celebration.  Due to this, we will not have math today.  Come join us at 2:00!

Please encourage your children to remember that we are still in class and busy trying to learn each day.  Behavior is important and completion of assignments is a must.




OAA testing this week.

Monday:  FRACTION ACTIVITIES: listing factors of 24; looking at an array of 4-6 and relating parts of the whole to fractions/equivalent fractions; identifying how ‘reducing’ fractions uses common factors and division.

practice games to review facts (Have you played the game 24 yet?).

 

Tuesday:  Individuals and groups will complete review questions.

 

Wednesday:  OAA review of year’s activities

 

Thursday:  Due to schedule changes and OAA, no reading today.

 

Friday:  We’re continuing to work with fractions.  





We have one more week to practice OAA-type questions.
Although we are working on fractions, our week will continue to be divided between fraction activities, skill based games, and review activities.




We've started fractions.
This week we've been introduced to fractions, but we're not finished with long division. We will continue to work with both topics as we move on toward our vacation.

Wednesday:  We're making fraction kits to use in class during various future activities.

Thursday:  We continue to practice percervierance as we try to solve multi step word problems.  Today's problem deals with deciding if everyone gets a fair lunch when different groups of kids divide various amounts of sandwiches among varying numbered groups of students. I expect it to be a busy problem, but the kids are getting better at working through and trying different strategies.
