Friday 4/3 Assignment - See how far you can get in the TreeFrog Treasure game on ABCYA! Farthest I've seen any student get in class was the beginning of World 3. If anyone should beat the game, let me know what happens!

You could also use the day to catch-up on assignments if you've just entered the class. Have Fun and enjoy your Friday!!

TreeFrog Treasure

Thursday 4/2 Assignments - Common Denominators ( will make assignments available on Khan Academy tonight for completion tomorrow)
3 videos totaling 16 minutes
1 article with practice problems - 10 minutes
1 exercise and 1 quiz totaling 10 questions - The quiz is not graded. It just lets me know that you are completing assignments to the best of your abilities.

Keep up the good work! Top 3 students who have leveled up the Most Skills.  pazvh2009 - 57 skills      HayAlexB - 45 Skills     "STELLAR" Minick - 40 skills
Remember you can always do more videos, practices, and skills than what I assign. A good place to start, if you want to learn something new, would be MULTIPLYING FRACTIONS. The next concept we are going to learn when we return to class is multiplying fractions.

Now that teachers can get into the school on certain days, I will be creating new packets like the " At Home" packet with lessons for each day. Each packet will contain 5 or 10 days worth of lesson plans. I will also continue to post Khan academy assignments on a daily basis. My hope is to give students anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes of work each day to complete. They can spend that time on Khan academy, packet work, or a combination of both.
If any student needs help with work , they can email, text, or call me at 570-510-5374. If I don't answer please leave a message, and I will call you back. 2 PEACE OUT MAD WOODWARD!

Wednesday 4/1 Assignments - Equivalent Fractions and Comparing Fractions:
Shouts today for the kids who had the most total learning minutes over the last 2 days. They are cidthekid22, HayAlexB, MadalynW565, oneilk8, pazvh2009, rakauskasmar, and Vader201. I wish I knew your true identities, but all I have to work with are these CRAZY user names you came up with! For example who would have known that HayAlexB is really Bluhm of Hayden!!
There is no pressure to complete all of the assignments especially if you missed a day, or if you just joined the classroom. Try to complete 1 days worth of assignments and go from there. If you want to complete more you can. Have to add another shout out to DragonEggless who has been under the guise of several different names on Khan academy. When I added up the total minutes from all of her secret identities, she too belongs in the top 5 for Total Learning Minutes!!! 

3/31 Review of Mixed Numbers and Improper Fractions . - Everyone did a great job that entered the class and completed some of the assignments. If you weren't able to complete them all today, come back tomorrow to try to catch up. Remember these lessons are not graded. They are only for review and enrichment. Special shout outs going to these kids who completed every assignment on Day 1 : AmandaN0628, LTrue1, Rakauskasmar, Sff, and Xeni15. Keep up the good work everyone!  

3/30  Great Job students and parents getting logged on to the Khan Academy classroom! While completing any lesson or assignment in 4th grade math is beneficial, I would like all students to try to complete the assignments that I assigned to you FIRST. After those are completed, you can explore and do other lessons of your choosing. There is an assignment tab on the left hand side to bring them up. The assignments are where we left off in our 4th grade curriculum and where we will be going next , so they will THE MOST BENEFICIAL for you to complete, Especially if you have aspirations of receiving a MATH WHIZ pencil one day. I will post the assignments for tomorrow later on tonight. Great job with the work today everyone!

Hello all ! I miss everyone and can't wait to get back to school! Hopefully you're enjoying your time off, staying safe, and completing your school work.
