Fourth Grade Math Teacher’s Guide
by Donna Simmons
Newly Revised (Summer 2017)!
This 77 page book includes chapters on the following:
- an overview of 4th grade mathematics;
- practical matters such as using workbooks, worksheets, calculators, manipulatives and children's literature;
- content for 3 main lessons;
- factorization and prime numbers;
- comparing, rounding off and estimation;
- number journeys (mental math);
- word problems;
- area and perimeter;
- active math and games;
- the advanced math student;
We do not simply outline subjects: we give examples of problems; show how to move from simple to more complex; and give actual examples of word problems, number patterns and much more.
We are very pleased with this curriculum and believe that it truly meets the needs of students ranging from the slow to the advanced. We have taken great pains to show parents how to teach concepts and what to do when a child is struggling. This is not just a series of lesson plans - there is plenty of teaching advice throughout the book. We also give plenty of suggestions for those whose children are progressing rapidly.
For those of you with 5th graders who are behind or have gaps, we strongly suggest you purchase this curriculum.
