4th Grade Homework Update

A few weeks before winter break, I began assigning homework to 4th grade students.  The homework has been due once every 6-day cycle.  In addition to regular homework, students usually have an "extra challenge" -- an optional assignment that is more difficult than our regularly-assigned work.  Many students have been choosing to complete the extra challenge!  They can be very proud of their efforts!

So far, students have completed all of their assignments on paper.  In the next 1-2 weeks, fourth grade students will have their first online assignment.  They should do the following:

1) Go to the following address: www.quia.com/web

2) Enter their username (their first name and last name followed by a number) and their password.  Students will receive their username and password in their next full group class.  If they lose their username or password, please e-mail me and I will be happy to send you their information.

Many students previously used the Quia website to complete our optional summer work.  I previously used this website to assign homework when I taught middle school students.  My favorite part about this website is that students have multiple tries to answer each question.  If they answer a question incorrectly, it will turn red, signaling that they should try to answer it again.  If they answer the question correctly, it will turn green.  Students love getting instant feedback about their work in Spanish!

Please let me know if you have any questions as we roll out online homework.
