Math Review




We do Math Review everyday to practice math
skills.
After 2 weeks of Math Review a Math Review Quiz
is given to test the math skills practiced in class.
The graded quiz will be sent home for a parent
signature. Please sign and make sure the student
brings it to school the next day. All quiz are kept
with teacher for records and should not be kept at
home.
Students successful in Math Review Quiz will earn
class dojo points between 10 to 20 points every
quiz, to use towards SOAR store dollars.
Classwork



Classwork consists of group discussions and
presentations, class bar graph, fact fluency,
independent work and exit tickets.
If your child is not being successful in his or her
classwork, we need to discuss how we can work
together, to find a way for the student to find
success.
Ask your student about using strategies in math
and problem solving strategies. Strategies are for
student success and is it is imperative that they
are used at all times.
Homework



Homework will be given everyday. Please make
sure your child brings homework everyday. They
earn class dojo points for homework, to use as
SOAR store dollars.
The answers should not be just circled. Homework
is given on a daily basis to measure progress and
should not be taken lightly. Please ask your child
about math strategies and make sure that they are
using and showing all their strategies for
homework.
Please encourage your child to practice
multiplication facts every day for at least 10
minutes. They can use flash cards (make their
own) or simply write down the facts and practice.
After school tutoring


If your child has been identified for after school
tutoring, you will receive a letter. Please sign and
return the next day so that your child can stay for
tutoring.
It is very important that your child comes for
tutoring as it will definitely help him or her be
successful in 4th grade.
