Teacher Marc Van Assen - Fourth Grade  (Send e-mail)

October 14th, 2018

Parents,

Eureka Math
The students did an excellent job on Module 2 end of assessment. We are now moving through Module 3.

Module 3 is multiplication and division so students need to know their facts. We start out with area and perimeter and then move on to learning different ways to multiply and divide using different methods.

Continue to practice with Zearn at least 2 nights a week and log in in on your Zearn / readng log sheet. Please return on Monday for the next check in.

Please color the boxes for each day that you are able to get the Zearn lesson and or reading lesson done. At the end of the week the parent will sign and then return the sheet every Monday. The students can earn Mr.Van Tickets. This will also help me keep track of time spent reading and practicing the math lessons.

Feel free to visit you tube and search for the current Eureka module and lesson. You will find videos that will guide you on some of the problems from the lesson.
Module Tip sheets can be found in the downloads section of the web page.
