Monday/Tuesday: We will learn about elapsed time and converting time.

**I have posted a review and answer key for the test under Math Reviews. You will have to scroll to the bottom of the page. 
**We have been using what we call the STAAR Chart for this unit. It is a chart that they get to use on all tests, and is very helpful for this unit. Here is a copy if they need it for their review: https://tea.texas.gov/sites/default/files/2014-15_RefMat-G4-f.pdf
**If students bring back the review (can be done on lined paper if you do not want to print), they can earn a treat.
