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.

## 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.

· Rounding strategies differ based on addition, subtraction, multiplication or division. · We’ll continue to work on multiplication strategies all week.

## Are you practicing multiplication facts at home?

## We are realizing that there are many ways to solve a problem and still get the same answer.

## We're in the home stretch now.
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.
practice games to review facts (Have you played the game 24 yet?).
## 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. Friday: Division practice allows us to realize that the remainder can be represented as a fraction Monday: More story problems relating remainders to fractions. ## Friday's quizes were not graded over the weekend.

## Don't forget to vote this week.Monday: Today we got our math tests and evaluated how we did and what we ned to focus on in class, so that we may do beter on our next test. I look forward to sharing these tests with you at confernces.We're designing an indoor swiming pool to help us focus on perimeter, area, and volume. We have to update and evaluate our Browns data (even though they did not win). How many pumpkins can we buy for $20? We're still trying to figure that out at the Pumpkin Palace. *HOMEWORK: get card describing test signed Tuesday: prefix/geometric shape activitywork with 'order of operations' multiplication practice ·
*HOMEWORK: back of geometric shape page/DMR 3 pages-due Thursday Wednesday: Are you tired of Halloween candy yet? We aren't! We're doing activities within the classroom with it.·
*HOMEWORK: Graph the rest of your Halloween candy and find the mode candy left. Thursday: workbook pages·
*HOMEWORK: worksheet Friday: finish activities from earlier in the week## We're still collecting data to calculate statistics.
