This bundle consists of a year (87 PAGES TOTAL) of daily spiral review practice for Monday – Thursday with a corresponding “Smartiecat Quiz” each Friday that assesses the skills practiced that week. My 4th grade teachers have used this program for four years, and was updated to Common Core Standards two years ago. We typically start the program immediately the first full week and continue to year’s end at my school. There are 34 weeks of practice and quizzes, enough for the entire year! It includes adding, subtracting, multiplication, division, fractions, geometry, algebra, related facts practice, word problems, and more!
Every student strives to be a “Smartiecat” on Friday’s quiz! They LOVE the fun cats they find on every practice page and quiz page!
Questions are based upon Common Core Standards! Also, TN Ready (we live in Tennessee) and PARCC release questions are heavily integrated, especially in the spring as standardized tests approach.
Teachers and parents can use this to assess grade level skills EVERY WEEK! This program has been CRITICAL for our standardized test results!
Every Smartiecat Quiz is based directly off that week’s questions, so there are no surprises. If you haven’t taught the skill except for that week’s practice questions, your students should still succeed on the quiz (if they’ve been paying attention during math fluency time each Mon-Thurs, that is!)
It takes only about 5-10 minutes daily, with a bit more time for Friday’s Smartiecat Quiz. Also, the entire week’s practice questions fit on one page!
At a specific time during the math block (usually the beginning), give the students time to do the daily row, then go over the answers on the board, Elmo, or Smartboard. On Friday, the students take the corresponding Smartiecat Quiz. The Smartiecat Quiz can be graded by the teacher, or you may choose to have students complete the Smartiecat Quiz with another student, a table group, and/or together as a class to save grading time if you don’t need to take a grade.
An answer key is included!
Please see my preview practice pages and quizzes for a closer look!
