Reading-

Read 20+ minutes per day (any reading is good reading, this can be magazines, picture books, chapter books, articles, newspaper articles, recipes, etc…)

Listen to reading- storylineonline.net is a great resource where famous actors/actresses read to you

Discuss what you have read:  Find the main idea, discuss the setting/characters/conflict/resolution, find cause and effect/compare/contrast scenarios, locate fact vs. opinion, etc…

 

Math-

Practice math facts-while sitting in the house, at the dinner table, or taking a walk ask your child multiplication and division fact questions such as 9x7 or 30/5

Show your work- ask your child to solve questions such as 435x87 or 321/4. You can also ask your child to solve fraction problems such as 1/3+2/8 making sure that he/she changes the denominator.

 

Writing-

Stories- Ask your child to write a personal narrative (a story about him/her and an event that has happened in his/her lifetime

Research papers- Have your child conduct research on a topic of choice (also known as Genius Hour to the fourth graders). They should use One Note if they can to document their findings and then can create a Powerpoint/Sway/poster/etc… on their findings.

Free write- Allow your child to free write. This could be in the form of a journal of their time away from school, a fictional story, a letter to a friend or family member that can be mailed, etc…
