• Welcome to Fourth Grade!!

    I am so happy to be teaching and getting to know your child this year! My contact information is mcrews@cleveland.k12.ms.us. On this website, I will include our math daily lesson, as well as science and social studies weekly lessons. I check my email at least twice a day between 7:30 and 3:30, but any emails after 3:30 will be answered the following morning. I look forward to inspiring and growing your child in math, social studies, and science throughout this year!!   

    We will take a mad minute test weekly.  They will begin with 3 minutes and will decrease each week. This is a G1 weekly grade. 

    Students are given time during the week to complete IReady lessons/assignments. They are given grades based on completing the amount of time and lessons. 

    Signed papers will be sent home every Tuesday to be signed and need to be sent back on Wednesday.

    Your child's Pearson account is as follows: user name is his/her MSIS number and the password is password1.

    PE is on Thursdays! Please make sure your child wears tennis shoes on that day! 

    First nine weeks' mad minute will be multiplying one digit by one digit. Example: 5x8.

    Second nine weeks' mad minutes will be multiplying two digits by one digit. Example: 45 x 8 This will begin Tuesday, Oct. 19. We will begin with 6 minutes and decrease 10 seconds each week. Please practice at home! 

    Third nine weeks' mad minutes will be addition with regrouping using 4,5,and 6 digits. Example: 5,673 + 4,291. 

    Fourth nine weeks' mad minutes will be subtraction by regrouping using 4,5,and 6 digits. example 4,678- 189 

    All parents/visitors should check in the office before entering the hallway.
