Week of January 7, 2019
In math, students worked on the last 3 lessons of chapter 4 which included placing the first digit when dividing, checking division answers, and problem solving. Students had opportunities to work on other math activities including problem of the month, error analysis, math comic, and review activities. I would suggest asking your child how to solve problems using long division as well as how they can interpret remainders. There are many examples and activities that they can use on thinkcentral.com.
Next week, 3rd graders will take the NWEA math test on Tuesday, January 15 during their regular math period.
4th Grade Due dates:
Opinion Writing Rough Draft: Due Monday, January 14, 2019
Native American Choice Board Project (not on google classroom): Due Monday, January 14, 2019.
Students will have time to work on both of these assignments during class on Monday.
