Super Sunny Saturday

Hello Everybody,

Before this fall-like weekend slips by us, I wanted to send out a quick shout out to all of our 4th graders who did such a great job keeping up with this past week. I must say, I was impressed with their work ethic, determination, and drive in completing everything that was asked of them. High-five to all who took part in reviewing, quizzing, and questioning for each and every assessment given last week. The final scores tell it all!

For this upcoming week, we are approaching the end of chapter two in math, so there will be a Check Your Progress quiz on Wednesday, a Chapter 2 test on Thursday, and a Cumulative Review test on Friday. I will be having a math-help session on Wednesday, so we can practice word problems and review any areas of need.

Monday, October 15, all book report presentations will be given. Like you, I have been verbally giving your student a time-line as to when each part of a book report should be done. In life, we are constantly looking and planning ahead. Some people live in the moment and some do not. Here is a great opportunity and teaching moment to help your student understand and learn the importance of time management and how procrastination can hurt in the long run. I am looking forward to hearing all of the presentations and seeing the awesome projects.

In Grammar, we will begin learning more about Nouns in Unit 2 and continue reading in our novel. Everybody is finding out that a novel study is quite different than reading a novel on their own. We are able to get more in depth with the content of each chapter and that more learning is done with each chapter. Yesterday, your student was given a new spelling list with 25 words. Some words are now familiar with your student, and all be covered before the spelling test the week of the 14th.

Believe it or not, we are almost done with the 1st grading period of 4th grade. Your student has accomplished quite a bit since August 13th. I am very proud of the progress and hard work that I see on a daily basis from our students. Each one deserves a pat on the back for the effort given these past 35 days of school.
Job Well Done!!!

Yours truly,
