We are still working our way through the concepts in Chapter 12.  Please look over these concepts for measuring using standard and metric measuring systems.

Weekly Math:

Every Friday your child should bring home a math practice paper. The math worksheet will be a review of concepts already covered in the classroom. Students should be able to do the work independently. However, if you notice your child is struggling with a concept, please help him/her. Math practice is due back on Thursday. If your child doesn’t return it by Thursday, he/she will receive a pink “missing/incomplete assignment” sticker for not being responsible and automatically miss Friday Rewards. Students who do not complete the work or meet grade level expectations will revisit the concepts during Friday Rewards.

NWEA – MAP test

Next week, the fourth graders at Arno will be taking their math and reading MAP (Measure of Academic Progress) assessments.  Students are familiar with this test, so please encourage your child to try their very best on these tests!  We will be taking two! On Tuesday, we will be taking our Math MAP test and on Thursday will be taking our Reading MAP test.  Since we will be taking the test first thing in the morning, please try to get your child to school on time, and make sure that they have had a healthy breakfast!
