Hi 4P Families! I hope that you are having a fantastic weekend! March Gladness continues this week! Calendars were sent home with your 4th grader last week, I will also list special events below.
Tuesday Desk Decorations – As part of March Gladness, we will be decorating our desks on Tuesday! I’m encouraging students to bring in streamers, tape and other things to decorate the front and sides of their desks.
4th Grade Coin Drive – Although our 4th grade coin drive to benefit The Loft in Millersville doesn’t start for a couple more weeks, our class got a jump start last week! The kids are really excited about helping in our community! We are also looking for some empty plastic containers that we can use for our coins. If you happen to have one that we can keep, we would love to have it! Thank you for your support!
Sapphire – We are moving right along in this 3rd Marking Period. I continue to encourage you to keep an eye on Sapphire grades. This is also a good way to see the grades that your child is receiving on the Google Classroom assignments/assessments that I grade. Sapphire grades are updated as assignments/tests come in each week.
Math – Math tests looked fantastic last week! We started Chapter 11 on Friday and will continue with this chapter on Customary Measurement for the next couple weeks.
ELA – The students seem to really enjoy our unit on Author’s Purpose and Author’s Claim. We have been reading some good articles and are digging deep into analyzing how writer’s sometimes try to persuade us with their claims. We are working on an essay that has us citing evidence from TWO passages that discuss the importance of recycling. On Tuesday, we will take our unit test for this mini-unit. There is no TDA as part of this unit test. Graded tests will come home this week.
Spelling – Spelling lists continue to have rigor to them. Please encourage your 4th grader to look over his/her list each evening.
Content – We will continue to learn more about the planets, Earth, the moon and sun this week. The students seem to enjoy this science unit.
