Fourth Grade Daily Homework Requirements
Reading homework in 4th grade is probably different from what you have seen in prior grades. Our main daily homework requirement is 30 minutes of AR (Accelerated Reading) at home. This means each child reads an AR book he/she has selected at his/her own level to prepare for a comprehension quiz taken at school.
Math timed tests are given daily. Students must pass additon, subtraction, multiplication and division timed tests within 3 minutes for first trimester for a passing grade. Second trimester students must complete all timed tests within 2 minutes for a passing grade. Instant recall of basic facts are critical to success in math.
Thanks for helping your child be successful.
