Homework Assignments due On:
Students should be studying their multiplication facts everyday. Fact quizzes that aren't passed are due back the next day, with fact worksheet completed. Multiplication facts are a 3rd grade standard, so every day and week that goes by of your student not knowing them sets them further and further behind.
Homework is due on these days:
Tuesday (6/2): Any unfinished in-class work
Wednesday (6/3): Any unfinished in-class work
Thursday (6/4): Any unfinished in-class work
Friday (6/5): Any unfinished in-class work

Welcome to 2015!!!
Hello Parents! Happy 2015 to you all. I hope the December vacation was enjoyable for each of you and that you and your children were able to get outside whenever the weather permitted. We are jumping right back in where we left off in December. We will be starting a new math unit, this one based around division and then moving into fractions. Fractions are always a challenge for fourth graders, so any extra help you can provide them would be great. In general, fourth graders work with fractions that have denominators (the number in the bottom of a fraction) of 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 10, 12, 50 and 100. If you do a lot of cooking/baking at home, try having your child help with the measuring of ingredients and discussing with them what each measurement means and also what the total amount of ingredients might be (say you use a 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract, ask how much of a teaspoon the cinnamon and vanilla equal... 2/4 or 1/2). We will also be finishing up our States of Matter unit and then quickly moving into a study of native Vermont animals, their adaptations and habitats, diet and tracking. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. Stay warm!
