As I type this, we have 37 school days remaining and about 27 days until our Math STAAR test on May 14. Wow!
This week we are reviewing perimeter and area, customary and metric measurement systems, converting within the same system of measurement and problem solving with time, measurement and money. We will take our unit test on Thursday and go over the test on Friday.
Monday, April 9th we will begin our unit on geometry and angles. We will learn the attributes of rectangles, squares, trapezoids, rhombus', and parallelograms. We will also discuss lines of symmetry and angles (acute, obtuse, right - finding missing angles, measuring angles), lines (parallel, perpendicular and intersecting), rays, line segments. Once we wrap up geometry and angles we will cover data analysis and financial literacy to wrap up our 4th grade math TEKS. Lastly, we will spend a few days reviewing in preparation for our STAAR test on May 14th.
**Math homework was assigned today and will be due FRIDAY, April 6th. Please ensure your child completes their homework. This is the last week of the fifth six weeks period.
