My Students

Welcome to 4th grade Math and Science! In math and science it's so important that "It All Adds Up!" I am hoping to get a full set of calculators for each of my 4th grade classes.

This will be the 1st year that 4th grade is departmentalized (switches classes) at my school.

We have 2 fourth grade classes. I will be teaching Math and Science. I am so excited to take part in this new adventure with my students. I would like to have calculators in my class so that I can teach my students how to properly use this helpful tool! I want my students to understand that calculators are a tool we can use to assist us in solving problems. They are not designed to "just give and answer," but rather to help us solve a problem.

My Project

My students will begin by using the calculators to check their work when we learn a new concept. I want them to be able to complete the steps correctly on their own. After they master the given skill, they will then be allowed to work through a problem using the calculator to assist them.

I feel that the calculators will be make a huge difference in my class.

A calculator is something they will use in higher grades, and for the rest of their lives. I want to help them learn how to use them in the correct way.
