Math Help Book for Fourth Grade

 GREAT NEWS !!!!!!

Student at Desk Solving Math Problems ClipartI am in the process a putting together a math help booklet for the fourth grade classroom.  The students will receive this booklet and will be able to use it to help them with problems they do not understand as they progress through the math curriculum this year.

I am doing all chapters for the entire book and the getting ready for 5th grade chapter as well.  I only have a few left to go.  I am hoping to give the students the helps for Chapters 1 through 6 next week.  The students will find all diagrams and models used in the lessons explained and examples given on how to use them.  The process of multiplying in various ways will also be explained so the students can see how it is done step by step for each process.  A times table chart will be included so they can use it, if they do not know their facts.  The goal of chapters 2 and 3 are to teach the process of multiplication by 1 and 2 digit multipliers, not memorize your facts.  Some students have a terrible time memorizing the facts, and I do not want to let this get in the way of learning how to multiple multi-digit numbers by a one or 2 digit multiplier.

Hopefully, this will help lessen some of the stress on the students and the parents.  I am hoping this will serve as a reference guide for the students and the parents as well.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at mileys@fmtigers.org or call me at 717-349-2513 ext. 3034.
