Students and families,
I hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy. During this time off school there are several things the students can do to stay on top of their education. Please see below for some past and present math skills you can keep working on while we're off, along with the information for accessing our math book online! There are many great websites and apps to help keep up on all subjects - just click the Math App link to the left for a few already listed. Click on the Spelling link to see upcoming lists and practice games also. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me as I will be checking that daily. Remember, we're all in this together!
Look for an email from your child's homeroom teacher every Monday with information for that week. You can also find all weekly assignments through Click on Nolley Google Site, use the menu at the right to go to 4th grade.
It is very important to keep up with your fact practice. 

Think Central is the website that goes along with our current math series. Here’s what to do to access this and keep moving along.

  1. Email me for the username and password of your student.    

  2. Log in to  Click on “Things to Do”, go to “My Library”.  Click on HSP Math Student Edition, G4, OH. (This is the math text book that goes along with everything we've been doing this year.) Go to Chapter 15 (current chapter).  It would be helpful to review each lesson.  

  3. Each lesson has an Intervention and Mega Math Activity link on the right hand side. These are extra materials which are extremely helpful. Everything is read aloud. There is also an Enrich With Projects link for those who could use extra stretching!

  4. Your student can complete the practice questions throughout the Intervention and Mega Math activities, along with the practice problems at the end of each lesson.

  Again, please email me for the username and password of your student.
Moving forward:
Please check the weekly email sent each Monday morning for assignments. We may send others during the week, but Monday will have your assignments. They will also be posted on the Nolley Google site through or use this direct link to take you there.
Continue to practice all skills you have learned this year:
  • place value up to a million
  • number patterns
  • multi-digit addition and subtraction, using regrouping and borrowing
  • 3-digit x 2-digit multiplication *don't forget the holding zero!
  • long division - up to 3-digit dividends divided by a 1-digit divisor *Do you still have your cheeseburger we made to help?
  • graphs - bar graph, double bar graph, line plot
  • coordinate plane
  • fractions - find equivalent fractions, compare and order, find simplest form 
    *Practice finding common denominators - you will need this to add and subtract unlike fractions next chapter.
     **Refer to the Fractions Reference Sheet I gave you if you forget something (white half sheet).
  • If you have your vocabulary notebook please review the words and definitions so you don't forget them.
