4th Grade Math Parent Study Guides
Fourth grade math is challenging! During my first year teaching, I would constantly hear parents say, “the way they teach math now is different than the way I learned it.” So, I began making these 4th grade math parent study guides to show parents the way I was teaching concepts in class and to provide step-by-step instructions for difficult concepts such as long division and fractions. I constantly have parents tell me “thank you” for sending these home and how helpful they find them. Parents have said these study guides help them make sure their children are completing their math homework correctly and ensure that their children are studying for tests.
