Barber - 4th Grade Math/Science

Hello My Name Is...

Ms. Barber - 4th Grade Math/Science

Dear Students and Families, 

Welcome to WEEK 5 of Distance Learning for 4th Grade Math/Science at Browne EC.  I hope you are safe and healthy while you are out of school and learning from home!  For Math, students will use the Week 5 math learning packet for Fractions and BrainPop - Number & Opertions - Simplify Fractions .  In math, you will be reviewing, applying, and extending content from the this school year.  For Science, students will use BrainPop to learn about Energy.  Links to the Math Packet, ClassDojo, Microsoft Teams, Clever IReady, Clever Zearn, ST Math, and BrainPop are listed at the bottom of this page.  I added Flocabulary as a learning tool.  Students LOVE, LOVE this site and should enter the code 9VVWXT to join the class Barber@Browne.  The link is listed below.

My Daily Schedule:
9-11 am  -  Teacher collaboration and planning
12-3 pm  -  Family outreach, teacher/student lessons, parent conferences

Ways to Communicate:
1) BrowneEC website - check here throughout the week for lessons,
                                  education links, videos, updates, and family resources
2) ClassDojo - this is the main method of communication for messages,
                       updates, Go the Distance math problems, links to learning
                       resources and apps, and questions/comments
3) GoogleVoice - call me at (202) 681 - 9359
4) Remind - text messaging between teacher and parents
5) Microsoft Teams - allows FaceTime for teacher/student learning, videos,  
                                  and powerpoint lessons
*Download Microsoft Teams to your phone, tablet, or computer.  Log in using (use studentID number) and password is your birthday.  Look for posted assignments, powerpoints, and live lessons.

Parent Contact - PLEASE make sure BrowneEC, Ms. Grazette, and I have your most up-to-date phone number, email, and address

                                 Science Lessons

BrainPop - Click on Science and then click Energy.  Students may choose 3 or more systems to learn about.  Students should then complete one or more of the activities listed next to the video.  Students can send me pictures, texts, or video messages through ClassDojo to show their learning.

                             MATH LESSONS

1) BrainPop - Click on Math and then click Number Sense.  Students will review the concept of simplifying fractions.  After students watch the video, they should complete one or more of the activities listed next to the video.  Students can send me pictures, texts, or video messages through ClassDojo to show their learning.

2) Math Packet
This week you will be focused on decomposing fractions and fraction equivalence using division. The table below outlines how you might organize completing your math work for the week.  






Pages 3-8: Fraction Equivalence with Multiplication

30 minutes


Pages 9-13: Fraction Equivalence with Division

30 minutes


Pages 14-17: Fraction Equivalence with Tape Diagrams and Number lines

30 minutes


Page 18-22: Compare Fractions and Place them on a Number Line
