Do your students seem to forget what they learned last year or what you've taught them at the beginning of the year when test time comes? A complete math program takes a balance of many components including Daily Spiral Review as well as Daily Problem Solving. This product was written to use for Spiral Review, Numeracy Practice, and Problem Solving in 4th Grade.
This is the 4th part in a series and has enough work to last 6 WEEKS and is designed to begin sometime after the 4th six weeks of school.
It should be used in conjunction with the Number of the Day and Problem of the Day—which are included in this product. If you buy this product, it is essential that your students do the Problem of the Day every day in order for them to get daily practice in working word problems. The Number of the Day gives extra numeracy practice and is very important as well.
Please download the Set 19 PREVIEW for a complete explanation of how you could implement it in your classroom and see all that is included. The actual product download includes Sets 19-24 (lasts 6 weeks.)
It was created to be a “Bellwork” assignment, but there are lots of other ways to use it in a classroom. Many teachers have been using this as an intervention tool.
The problems are not of a HIGH difficulty level and are not in test format They are intended to help give a QUICK review of the basic skills needed.
I like to check the problems with the students shortly after they have completed them, so they get the quick feedback.
SCORE SHEET: You can track students’ progress for intervention and RTI using the “Score Sheet” that is found at the end of this document. There is now a Score Sheet for the “Problem of the Day” and “Number of the Day” that can be copied on the back of the Spiral Review Score Sheet.

Revisions for 2-14-16
I revised the Number of the Day to include fractions two days a week. So...Monday works on a whole number, Tuesday works on an improper fraction, Wednesday works on a decimal number, and Thursday has a mixed number. Since fractions is such a big part of the 4th grade curriculum, I think this will help use work on it in depth each week.
I changed a few of the measuring angles questions where the angles do not all line up with 0 degrees. There is a possibility that the questions on the STAAR will have questions that do not always line up with 0 degrees. (ugh)
I also added a new score sheet to track multiple sets, instead of just one set on a page. I have included an explanation of how to use the new TEKS tracking sheet.
