Please remember to study those multiplication facts each night! I know that everyone is so busy during this time of year. One suggestion is to practice in the car. As you are going to school, football practice, the grocery store, etc., you can quiz your child on the basic facts. By studying 10 minutes each day, you will notice drastic improvements. I am including three links below which will enable you to practice facts online. These are just a couple of many. Happy studying!
This website has activities, and an option to print your own flashcards.
This is an interesting website that allows you to take timed multiplication tests. The timer is set, and you answer the questions, it grades your answers at the end. Remember, our goal is to be able to answer 100 questions in 5 minutes!
This is my favorite website, Math Magician. This website has many fun games that you can play while practicing your facts!

MCC4.NBT.1 Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right.
For example, recognize that 700 ÷ 70 = 10 by applying concepts of place value and division.
MCC4.NBT.2 Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. Compare two multi-digit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
- How can I represent numbers?
- How do we read and write numbers using base ten numerals, number names, and expanded form?
Standard Form (Base ten numerals)
1,000,000 + 700,000 + 80,000 + 9,000 + 300 + 20 + 6
One million, seven hundred eighty-nine thousand, three hundred twenty-six
*Remember to put a hyphen between any number between 0 and 99 that is two words. (twenty-four, seventy-one, ninety-nine)
Each group of 3 digits in a number
Each period is seperated by a comma
For example, the digits 281 are in the ones period.

In Social Studies, we are studying the American Revolution. The students love learning about the historical facts that helped shape our nation. I have included several interesting sites for further investigation.

The above anchor chart is on classifying quadrilaterals. It is important for students to understand that there is more than one way to classify a quadrilateral. For example, a square is a quadrilateral because it has four sides and four angles. It is also a parallelogram because it has two pair of parallel sides. It is a rhombus because it has four right angles, two pair of parallel sides, and 4 sides of equal length. It can also be a rectangle. So, a square is a quadrilateral, parallelogram, rectangle, rhombus, and a square.
This anchor chart is on how to graph using the coordinate system. The students learned to graph ordered pairs by "running" down the x axis, and "jumping" up the y axis. You always have to run, then jump!
This anchor chart is on solid figures. Students need to be able to identify the number of faces, edges, and vertices in each figure. They should also be able to identify a figure by looking at a net. A net is the figure unfolded, as shown on the left hand side.

In math we are working on graphing in the first quadrant. The students have had fun learning how to plot points in the coordinate plane. If you would like some extra help, the following website offers great practice. You can help Billy Bug find his food by directing him to the appropriate spot, according to the given ordered pair.
