Students are working on their math facts. They have been given a set of multiplication and division playing cards. Here are some games they can play to help build their fact knowledge.
We are beginning our first division unit. There will be a quiz each Friday. These quizzes are a great resource when studying for the unit test. This Friday's quiz will not have any long division, that's next week. This weeks quiz will include:
The 4th grade performance is next Friday. Please read the information below.
We will have our next math test this Tuesday. This test will focus on two-digit by two-digit multiplication and using estimation to check the answer. There are many tools your child can use to study for this test:
We have been working on our Science Essentials Unit for the last month. We began the unit by looking at observations and inference, exploring how they are different but connected. We then explored the science inquiry process. Determining what makes for a good science question. Students have been working on using a science process to answer the science question. They begin with using observations and their back ground knowledge to make a hypothesis about what will happen. They plan a investigation writing down the steps they will follow and creating a data table to record the data from their experiment. Next we work on analyzing the data they collect creating graphs, which they use to make a conclusion that answers their original science question.
I'm excited to begin my 7th year teaching at Coonley School. I've been teaching for over 20 years. I love creating projects and lessons that challenge my students.
