Welcome to 4th grade!

If you have experience with 3rd grade math, then 4th grade will be a natural transition. Think of your K-3 knowledge as the foundation for the grade 4 - you have some very valuable knowledge to work from.
Suggestions:
1. Look to your favorite K-3 math resources for the 4th grade level resources. These may direct you to your new favorites for 4th grade math.
2. Small group rotations in math are manageable. My former coteacher did it this way: Whole group short lesson, station 1 - small group with teacher for guided practice, station 2 - related fact practice, station 3 - independent skill practice.
3. Daily 3 for math (Like Daily 5 for reading) This is where my coteacher got ideas for #2.
