We will begin a new Every Day math
The most important thing you can do to help your child in math this year is to focus on mastering all multiplication facts (0-12) as quickly as possible. We will be learning 2-digit multiplication and long division before the end of the first semester. Students should be able to complete 100 facts in 5 minutes. A deck of multiplication and division flash cards for home use is highly suggested for practice.
Note: Home Links are a nightly homework assignment in 4th grade.
Our focus this year will be on the regions of the United States. Students will be required to know the states and capitals of the U.S.. We will also study MN Native American Tribes and other topics.
Science will be taught by Mrs. Pryzbilla.
REMEMBER to assist your child in selecting a healthy snack for morning break. Fruit, yogurt or other healthy foods are encouraged vs. crackers, cookies and other snack foods that have little nutritional value.
Our religion series is called Christ Our Life. We will begin unit 1 with a focus on coming to know God.
Students should be working to memorize the Ten Commandments and the Apostles Creed at home.
