I can’t believe it’s December 5 already! This school year is flying by (at least it is to me!). Here are a few updates and new information/reminders.
MATH: The students worked hard on Chapter 6. Tests came home today and corrections are due by Friday (or Monday, when I’m back). The students were required to complete a Benchmark Test today, covering material in chapters 4, 5, and 6. We will begin chapter 7 on Patterns and Sequences tomorrow (Thursday).
Spelling: Keep practicing. Test 11 is this Friday.
ELA (Reading): Students completed Unit 2 before Thanksgiving Break. Tests were returned last week. This month we are continuing to focus on Non-fiction text. The first lesson dealt with fact and opinion. We are working on learning different text structures (description, cause/effect, problem/solution, sequence, compare/contrast).
Science: They’re having fun continuing the unit on Physics/Magnetism.
Social Studies: We are learning about the 5 Themes of Geography.
**Items are still being collected for Hambright’s Mitten Tree!**
I received numerous compliments from Mrs. Breneman, as she was my substitute the past few weeks. I will be away again this Friday for a trip and then next week for another training day. I expect the students to be as respectful, hard-working, and kind to the other substitutes as they were with Mrs. Breneman.
A reminder that December book orders are due Monday, and we have Book Exchange next Tuesday.
Thank you for sending your children to school ready to learn each day. I am just loving this group of fourth graders this year!
If you have any questions or concerns, remember that my door is always open. Thank you!
