Gabby - don't worry. You're doing better than you think you are. We have lots of time to practice tomorrow.
For anyone looking for additional worksheets to practice specific skill, I'll list a few sites:
Multiple skills including subtracting with zero (Worksheets are listed on the right side)
Really good homeschooling site with lots of worksheets
More 4th grade practice
Alex, that question (#10) is testing your understanding of the identity and zero properties. Do each problem and figure out which one has the lowest value. Then choose the one that is lowest.
Mrs. Maddaloni - that was a problem so we spent a lot of time last week reviewing it. Most have gotten it straight by now but I'll go over it again individually tomorrow. Thanks for letting me know.
Aisling - great question re # 46. To determine the shape, all you have to do is count the number of sides. It may not look like any shape we studied, but you know what a 6-sided figure is called. That's a really good example of needing to look at what information you know already that you can use to answer a question you don't find familiar.
Reminder - permission slips need to be returned if you are staying after on Monday and/or Tuesday
Weekend Homework -
1. Do the 3 (2006) Math packets.
2. STUDY - 2D and 3D shapes, measurement, double digit multiplication, associative and commutative properties
3. Review practice tests and let me know which questions or topics are giving you problems
4. Permission slips for Monday/Tuesday class.
Just think - this time next week it will all be over.
For those who are wondering -
Today (Thursday 4/29) was the last official day of NIA. However, because we had to end before the Math test, I will be doing after school prep sessions on Monday and Tuesday of next week. Students may come to either one or both. A note went home today.
Thursday Homework -
Share your Poem in Your Pocket Day poem with someone.
Finish Poetry packet - due tomorrow. To clarify - yes, you have to draw the combination animal and write a poem about it. The camel poem should be in the shape of a camel.
Math - Finish the Equivalent fractions sheets. Most of the NIA students finished that in class this afternoon because we did it together.
COACH - Lessons 38 & 39 in your notebook. This should be another review of the work we were reviewing in class today.
Tomorrow is Poem in Your Pocket Day so have a poem ready to carry with you.
Poetry packet due Friday
Math sheet plus COACH pages 183 - 185 in notebook
Tuesday Homework -
Math - sheets
ELA - Day 3 essay. You don't have to actually write the essay (though you can for extra credit). Just read the stories, do the short questions and do a detailed planning page for what you would write.
Make sure your pencils are sharpened. Get a good sleep, eat a good breakfast and come prepared to read and write an essay.
Monday Homework -
Read Chapter 4 of Rules.
Math - sheets
ELA - review sheet about writing an essay
Make sure your pencils are sharpened. Get a good sleep, eat a good breakfast and come prepared to listen and write an essay
