The 4th Grade News
Week of August 31st, 2015
A Note from Ms. Deal
It was been another successful week in 4th grade. We have (mostly) finished the Me Cubes, mastered commonly misspelled words and are getting used to the new schedule.
Please note that swimming next week will be on Tuesday and Thursday. Help your child remember to bring their equipment. Also, homework will be due on Fridays starting next week. I'm sorry for the many changes, but as a 4th grade team we feel this move will help to best prepare the students for what's to come next year. Obviously, if you have major issues, or a busy week I will make exceptions.
Lastly, 4th grade Soccer Day will be on Thursday, September 24th. I am looking for one parent volunteer to ride the bus with us on that day. Let me know if you are interested.
Thank you and enjoy the rest of your weekend,
September 8th and 10th - Swimming in P.E.
September 24th - Soccer Day
September 26th-October 4th - No School- National Holiday

Multiplication Word Problems
The students showed off their multiplication skills by creating their own word problems!
This week students learned more about the 6 Essential Nutrients
Me Cubes and (mostly) finished! Look for them to come home next week!
Writing: This week the 4th graders continued to study Explanation writing. They are getting very good at coming up with topic sentences and making sure that the rest of their writing relates to that topic sentence.
Reading: This week the students continued to enjoy their "good fit" books. A good fit book is a book that is on their reading level, interests them and is a book they will read from cover to cover.
