Dear Parents,

I hope you all had a wonderful Winter Break and enjoyed spending time 
with family and friends. Now that the commotion of the holiday season 
has calmed down a bit and the weather is keeping the kids indoors more 
it is a great time for extra math practice.  

The fourth graders will be moving into fractions by the end of the month 
and fact fluency is a critical part of understanding and grasping fractions.  
Please encourage your child to practice their multiplication and division 
facts over the next couple of weeks so they are ready for our fraction unit.

The following websites contain many math games:  (select grade level 4)
