303 and 306 students: attached is the rubric for the toy project. Please look at it as you make your slide presentation and make sure you have everything listed!
As we near the end of the year and prepare for MAP Testing, we're going to be doing homework a little differently to help us review!
This morning, students were given a cover sheet that lists all the homework assignments they need to complete between today and May 31st. There are 15 topics, and 15 corresponding assignments. All of these assignments are review (although we will be working on some of the geometry content in class this week to reinforce).
Every student has copies of each assignment stapled to their packet. We will also be doing review in class over the coming days. If students are showing a mastery of a concept during the in-class review, they will be excused from the corresponding homework assignment. If a student is excused from a homework assignment, they will receive a signature from me on their packet next to the assignment they may skip. All other assignments must be fully complete to get full credit.
Most of the assignments are the "re-teaching" from each unit. The re-teaching has examples on the left side, and problems on the right. If students are confused on a problem, they should first look at the examples on the side of the pages, then check their notebook (which they are always allowed to bring home), and then bring their packet in to me to ask for help.
Every student must bring their packet to school every day.
If you have any questions, please let me know!

Students do not need to do anything to prepare for testing, we will provide all materials. If you have any questions, let me know.
There will be a light, optional homework packet for students to do during the weeks of PARCC testing.
Here is the link to send a valentine to a kid in the hospital:
4th grade this year will be having small, in-class Valentine's Day celebrations. We'll spend some time exchanging Valentines and playing games on Wednesday, but due to our schedule, we do not have the ability to have a big party with parents invited.
If your child would like to pass out Valentines, please make sure they have one for every student (the magic number is 26). Please do not send anything edible with your child.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
Tomorrow the students will be getting reading log sheets for the Six Flags Read to Succeed Program. This is a program where, if your student reads and logs six hours, they will receive a free ticket to Six Flags amusement park. The log requires a parent signature for each entry. The students can read any book of their choosing.
Logs will be due February 22nd because the last day I can enter information is the last day of February. I will not accept ANY late reading logs.
If your student misplaces their reading log, you can print another from the attachment. I will not have extra reading logs to give out.
Please email me with any questions.
On Monday February 5th, 303 will have a midterm test on everything we have learned so far this year. The test questions will all be pulled from enVision, several of them may be questions students have seen already on previous tests or morning work.
This week, we'll be reviewing all topics covered this year (place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division).
If your child is looking for ways to study, here are some examples:
-Complete their homework packet, it is all review!
-Go on khan academy. They can search lessons on these topics and even watch videos explaining the methods!
-Take home their notebook and enVision book. There's lots of extra practice sheets in enVision and their notebook has notes and examples (particularly for place value)!
-Google! If your child is struggling with a particular concept, like long division for example, try searching for practice sheets on just that concept. Tons of websites will come up with practice sheets to print or games and apps their can use computers and iPads to use!
-Practice multiplication and division facts using flashcards!
If you have any questions, please email me.
