Peterson Elementary School Home of the Tigers!
Mission Statement: "Believe It! Achieve It!"
Reading is the foundation to your child's education. Please encourage your child to read at least 30 minutes each night.
Math:
To become good math students pracitce is necessary. Information is given in class daily that may assist students with assignments. If additional help is needed websites are listed as the bottom of the page which may be of assistance. If a computer is not available my contact information is also listed at the bottom of the page and I will do my best to make myself available when convenient for parents and student.
Homework Expectations:
Homework will be given in class each day. There is no homework on the weekend. However, please encourage your child to continue to read nightly.
If there is ever a problem with an assignment encourage your child to
do their best to complete it. In case of a family emergency or sickness please write a note and have your child make up his/her work as soon as the situation permits.
Each Student Must:
Try to answer all questions
Show all work on separate paper, in pencil,
as there is not room on the sheet to show complete mathematical thinking
Show answers on the homework sheet
Curriculum
In fourth grade, the students will be learning a variety of concepts.
Our curriculum is based Common Core State Standards found at
Ongoing Reminders
1. Math homework is to be done in the spiral. Always head the paper correctly. Start at the RED margin, and do not "squish" your work to fit on the page. Circle the question number.
2. Skip lines between questions.
3. Show work! Check your work! Be proud of your work!
4. File all math papers in your Math Folder.
Every so often we will clean out your Math Folder.
5. At the end of every chapter in our math series is the following:
a. Key Vocabulary and Concept Review
b. Chapter Test
c. Cumulative Review and Test Prep
d. LOTS of extra problems called
"Reteaching" and "More Practice"
6. Since math is ongoing, make sure you
continuously study previous quizzes.
For example, you cannot forget what we learned in Chapter 1,
such as place value, when we study geometry later in the year. It is perfectly acceptable for me to have previous information on a current graded assignment.
