I made my class supply list for fourth grade and was told fourth graders are too old to color and crayons should not be on the list. To me if they color something every once in awhile to help make learning more fun, there is no problem with that. Thoughts? Also, What do you do the first week to assess where your students are in math? This is my first year teaching fourth grade so not sure where to start with math. It doesn't help my books aren't in yet either. HELP!
