Students may bring in Valentines to exchange on Thursday.

Urgent call for Kleenex & Paper Towels!  Code numbers 1-10 bring in Kleenex.  Code numbers 11-19 bring in a roll of paper towels.

There are lots and lots of opportunities to lunch angel in Room 7.  Please volunteer!  Mrs. Cooper's favorite parents are lunch angels.  :)

 Save the Date Mrs. Cooper's Science Camp will be held June 12-14 & 17-18.  Some of our excursions I can't book while the federal government is closed.  After it reopens I will be able to send out the camp information.  

 

 

 

February

 

 

In Religion we are currently learning about the 10 commandments.  We go in depth into each commandment.  The students are required to memorize the 10 Commandments.  After we learn about all of them, we will have a big test.

In our reading book we are reading great stories about a very naughty dog, oil, and whales.  

In math we are working on the chapters on fractions.  Every student should be spending time every night working on all their facts, addition, subtraction, multiplication & division.  This will help make fractions a little less painful. 

We have been working very hard on Songs Across America, which is February 21st.  The evening show is at 7pm.  The children will wear their tie dyed shirts we made and a pair of jeans.  More details to come as we get closer.

In Grammar we are working on pronouns. We have also been writing some seasonal poetry.

We are really working hard on our Grandparent Books.  My goal is to have the manuscripts done by St. Patrick’s Day.  If your child is doing more than 1 book, they might be bringing it home on the weekends to work on the artwork. 

Other things to look forward to are:  Valentine Party – February 14th; No school - February  15th & 18th.  

There’s never a dull moment in the 4th grade!

In January & February we celebrate half birthdays of those students who are born in July & August.  If your child’s half birthday is coming up, they can bring in birthday treats to celebrate.  This isn’t required. 

 As the weather is getting cold, please send in the sweatpants for PE day on Wednesday.  PE gets out right before recess.  I don't want to make everyone get redressed before recess, because that takes a while.  If they had sweatpants handy to pull on then their legs wont be cold at recess.  If they don't have sweats they will have to put their uniform back on before they go to recess. 

As you can see, we have a busy month ahead.  Perhaps we will have some snow in the forecast to look forward to.  

 

 To encourage parents to check the web page weekly, I may place a secret word on the web page.  Write the secret word in your child’s organizer & they will get a treat on Fridays.  The secret word is cupid.
