4th Grade Teacher
We are digging more deeply into our Fractions unit. Please help your child review our daily math lesson by checking their homework. They should try the "circled problems" first then check their answers with you. Students are still struggling with simplifying fractions, switching back and forth between improper fractions and mixed numbers, and remembering to keep the common denominators the same when adding or subtracting fractions. (We NEVER add or subtract the denominators.) We are working on our second opinion essay on whether elementary students should have homework or not. If your child is behind on their first two essays, they need to now complete them as homework. Don't forget to have them practicing each week on Spelling City for their Friday vocabulary and spelling tests. Thanks for all you help!
