Study Tips:

Students must copy notes down exactly the way I write it. If not, they will have difficulty understanding things later. They should bring their binder home every night. This way they will know the correct procedure for their homework and learn it for tests and quizzes. In addition, the students need to review their notes and memorize the definitions, steps, directions, etc. The math notes are located here for fourth grade and here for fifth grade.

Students also need to constantly review basic math facts (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division). If they struggle with these or don't know them quickly, it will make the rest of their work very difficult.

Math builds. Once a concept has been tested, it will still come up, over and over, during the rest of the year, and for much of the rest of the student's school math career.

Math Help:

Math help is on Tuesdays after school until 4pm. This is for students who need extra help in math. I will contact you if I would like your child to stay. I would like this to be a time for me to help students who truly need the help. If too many students stay, this will not be a beneficial time for those students. If you think your child should stay, you may email me and I will make a decision about it. Please do not send your child to math review without discussing it with me first.

The students must bring their math book and binder (which includes the notebook and all corrections left to do) to math help. If they do not come prepared, do not get work done during help, or fool around, they will not be allowed to come back. I need to be able to work with students who are serious about receiving help.

At 4pm, I will open the door by our classroom to let you in. If you are not here to pick them up at 4:00, please pick them up from After Care (located in the Music and Art rooms). Thanks!

Math Facts:

It is extremely important for your child to know all of their math facts: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. It will be harder for your child if they have to take a lot of time to figure out basic math while they are working on new concepts. It slow them down in general. Various things work, including drilling your child on fact families every night (not every fact family, but pick some each night), math apps, math games online, flashcards, writing the facts, etc. Below are some links for math games so they can practice facts.

We do timed tests every day in math. Students all start with x2, then if they pass, they move on to the next one (all multiplication facts first, then some mixed facts, then division, then all operations). If they don't pass the one test (finish all questions, all correct, and within the required time), they will take it again the next day. These are not graded.
