*NEW – Grade 4 Online class Newsletter

Hello, Grade 4 families,

Although you may hear my voice ringing throughout your homes at the moment(… and for that, I am truly sorry!) I want to ensure you are still apart of our classroom and wanted to try out something new ( …new for me at least!)

Let me introduce our Grade 4 parent information slide.  I hope to update this regularly and you are encouraged to use it as much or as little as you need. Feedback is always welcomed, add a comment below to share your thoughts 🙂

Homework Wednesday!

Good morning, Grade 4!

Homework this week is a continuation of multiplication facts practise. Please see last weeks post for all resources plus continue to use your pack at home. and the homework planner included. I will be checking in with each student to see what they have worked on this week.

In addition to this, we have started to challenge ourselves with 2 digits by 1 multiplication. IF you are confident with your facts and want to practise these skills, here is a link to practice worksheets. I will also print copies of this to hand out in class.

There will be no Language Arts homework this week but remember you must still be doing your 20-30minutes of nightly reading.

All the best,

 

MissM

Multiplication workpacks!

Hello, Grade 4 and Grade 4 families,

 

A multiplication work pack is coming today. This is 4 weeks worth of practice. You will see that we have planned for each sheet, in the planner and added a date to be completed. Each practice will take no more than 5-10mins per night (Mon-Thurs). Please follow the chunked method (a small amount each day) rather than cramming an hour-long Sunday evening ‘homework night’.

PLEASE DO NOT COMPLETE THE WHOLE BOOKLET AT ONCE!

Each person learns differently so I am not encouraging anyone method over another but each child must be accountable for their practice. Here are some methods of accountability:

  1. Plan out when you will do each set – use the planner in the homework pack.
  2. Complete worksheet and submit for marking in class
  3. Make flashcards for each set of facts and verbally practise with some at home
  4. Complete a flipgrid practise video
  5. Spend time on IXL – Multiplication practise

We have had a whole class discussion about homework responsibility and accountability.
