Fourth grade is an exciting and challenging year in math.  Several topics will be focused on throughout the year.  Please continue to encourage your child to practice these topics to help them become more successful in math. 
 
Our current focus in math is on:  Number and Operations (Place Value, Addition, and Subtraction)  We are currently working on Chapter 1 in Go Math.  Please make sure you are reviewing all lessons.
