Good Morning Grade 4 and Grade 4 families,
Today… we begin homework!
General Studies homework will be given each Wednesday due in for the following Wednesday. The math portion links directly to the weekly math quiz. Students will have a homework folder and homework will be posted here on the blog also.
Math: Students will be practising the 2, 5 and 10 tables this week. After this week we will focus on one set at a time. Students can use worksheets, they can verbally practise below you will find links to songs and games.
Language Arts: This is a piece of homework that is ongoing for the next 4 weeks. We have been learning about recounts in class, using chronological order, past tense verbs and personal pronouns. Students are asked to choose one event to recount each week and then over the weeks, they will form a journal-style piece of writing. This can be handwritten or typed.
The homework for this coming week is to work on multiplication facts and work on paragraph writing. The students had the chance to choose their homework pages to put in their duo-tangs. They will need to write two paragraphs on topics of their choice on lined paper or work on the paragraph sheet with stated topics.
The students also chose two or three pages of multiplication of specific times tables they need to work on. Some students have also asked for an extra page of multiplication that they will bring home tomorrow. All the students were pretty excited about having the chance to choose their own homework. I hope they are just as excited about doing their homework at home 🙂
Homework duo-tangs are due next Wednesday, January 22nd
Tonight’s homework is to write a little review about one of the books you are currently reading for our reading challenges. You will share your reviews with the class tomorrow. It will be interesting to see what everyone is reading. Maybe one of your classmates will want to read the book you review. You can print the book review sheet out or you can write your review on lined paper, it is your choice.
Tonight’s homework is called Four Corner Math. You will take a piece of paper and put the number 50 in the middle of the page. Your job is to find four different ways of making 5o. Try to use different operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) for each corner. You may use as many numbers as you wish in your questions.
*Bonus*You may try to do another page of Four Corners Math, for the numbers, 36, 49, & 64
Here is the online homework 4A and 4B voted for tonight. This task is just like the other tasks we have done in class. Try and find as many different ways to combine these numbers using addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division to get 24 as an answer. You may only use each number once and you cannot combine the numbers to make a two-digit number. You can write your questions down on paper or you can show your answers in the comment section of this post. Have fun!
