What's Happening in 4th Grade!
February 11, 2014
Students wrapped up geometry last week and began learning about division this week. We know that division is the opposite of multiplication. Students will review multiplication and division fact families, before moving on to division with remainders, dividing larger numbers, problem solving, and writing division story problems. All of their hard work learning their multiplication facts will really pay off! If your child is still learning them, keep up the practice.
Throughout the rest of the school year, students will be reviewing previously taught skills and concepts on a regular basis. These spiral reviews help students retain information and become more proficient problem solvers.
Leadership Club will be selling Friendship Grams on February 12-13 during lunch time. A friendship gram is a note that you can purchase for a classmate, teacher, sibling, or friend. It even comes with a lollipop! Friendship grams will be delivered on February 14.
25 ₵ each
New this year: For an extra $1, you can add a chocolate bar for your friend.

Welcome Ms. Cummings
Hi! My name is Sara Cummings and I will be working with Mrs. Albertson's class until April. I graduated from UVA in 2012 and am currently studying Elementary Education with Mary Baldwin. I am very excited about learning more about teaching and am glad I was given the opportunity to work with the fourth grade. Some fun facts about me: I have a dog who was adopted as a puppy and was told would be no bigger than 50 pounds; he is now 105! I love Mac n' Cheese and Coke but I'm actually a great cook and love to bake as well. I'm originally from Fairfax, Va and decided to stay in Charlottesville because Fairfax was way too busy! I will usually be visiting on Tuesdays and Thursdays if you would like to meet me or have any questions!
We wrote 100 Facts About 100 on the board!
We used Google Earth to find cities that were about 100 miles from Crozet.
