Welcome!  Welcome! Welcome To the Fabulous 4th Grade!

2/10/20

 

We are taking Scantron this week.  Please make sure your child is on time to school for testing.

Please send in a coffee mug with your student on Wednesday for an activity we are going to do.  Students will bring these home after, so just one from your cabinet will work fine.

Our Valentine Party will be on Thursday.  Students may bring in Valentines.  

For those of students doing 2 books, we will be sending home pages to illustrate.  Students should be close to finishing their second manuscript.  These will need to be parent proofread. Please take a few minutes to make sure your child's book has correct spellings and information about your family.  As we are writing we may  need to get additional information for our books. 

Everyone will need to wear their tie dye shirt and a pair of jeans for Songs Across America on February 20th.  They can be jeggings for the girls if you already have a pair of those.  

 

  

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 the moon, civil rights, and some poetry.

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. Please don’t neglect IXL, 20 minutes a week is assigned and it does count towards their math grade.

In Grammar we are working on verbs.   The focus is on verb tenses and types of verbs.  We will then be moving on to pronouns. We have also been writing some seasonal poetry and doing research for Black History Month.

In science we are studying rocks, soil, and fossils.

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

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. 

Other things to look forward to are:  Valentine Party – February 13th; No school - February  14th & 17th.  

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

 

 

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 valentine.
