How Can Teachers Use It?

With clear illustrations and narration, the lessons in LearnZillion: 4th Grade Math are an effective way to address Grade 4 Common Core math standards. Many of the lessons include coach's commentaries and guided practice videos. The coach's commentaries can help you prepare for a lesson with information about prerequisite skills, common misconceptions, and teaching tips. The guided-practice videos give kids an opportunity to try a problem on their own before viewing the solution.

Overall, these lessons are best used as supplements to your classroom instruction. To use them most effectively, first view the coach's commentary, if it's available. Then, review the prerequisite skills out loud with the class to give kids a sense of where they're starting. Have kids view a lesson in small groups before coming back together to discuss the lesson. Last, have kids do the guided practice problem, working independently if possible. If the lesson doesn't have a practice problem, have kids write their own and exchange it with a partner to solve.
