Math Notebooks

This past week we began to create math notebooks.  Throughout the year we will use the math notebooks as a way to document our learning as well as a review tool.  Check out the pictures below for a sample of two pages from our notebooks!

Also be sure to check out the "Student" tab for new links to practice the basic multiplication facts!

First Week Fun

What a successful first week! The week was filled with getting to know each other activities and learning classroom routines. I'm looking forward to a great year! Check out the pictures below for some highlights from the week.

Students worked as a team to complete a puzzle of the characteristics they would like to see in their classmates such as "kind" and "helpful".  The pieces came together to make our classroom number, room 23!

Students made self-portraits which also described three of their interests.

Throughout the week students filled a time capsule with items.  One of the items pictured above was a measurement paper.  Students measured their height and will compare it with their end of the year height.  Other time capsule items included a hand tracing, a handwriting sample, a math timed test, and a letter.  We will open our time capsules on the final week of fourth grade.

Students spent time reading each day of our first week of school.  Fourth grade students are encouraged to read for at least 20 minutes at home each night.

Next week we will begin our classroom rotations and I will be focusing specifically on math.  Check back throughout the year to see what is happening on our fourth grade math journey!
