Fourth graders are required to learn all of the USA states and capitals as well as their locations on a map. This newsletter reminds parents that their children will be memorizing the states one region at a time starting with the Northeast.
I also mention that I'll always give my students a list of the states and capitals as well as a map of that specific region to study from. It is the responsibility of the student to study a little bit each night leading up to the quiz. My students always have at least 2 weeks notice before their quiz dates. If a child does not receive an 85% or higher, he/she will be allowed to retake the quiz for a higher score.
I also suggest some ways parents can help their kids study!
