Important Reminders:

With the end of 2nd quarter coming quickly, please remember some key components to your student's success in 4th grade:

  • 1) Check the daily planner link DAILY. (CLICK HERE) -- (it is helpful to put it as an "app" on your smart phone if you have that capability...your kiddo can most likely show you how to do this, Or put is as a book mark so you can easily access it to see what your child is responsible for.

  • 2) Scoot Pad every night (Click Here) -- (Your child is responsible for 1 reading / 1 math practice each night. (These don't take too long)

  • 3) Your child does have time in class for some homework completion, therefore, spending oodles of time each night on homework shouldn't be an issue. If it is, please let me know, and I can let you know how your child spends his/her study time here at school. We're really working on using our time wisely!

As always, thanks for your support in your child's education! If you have any questions re: expecations/etc please don't hesitate to ask!

Here's what our week was like!

Today your child went snowshoeing for phy.ed with Mrs. Ruh!

Assessed unit 4 (Today)

WTW: Sort Test Monday!

S.S.: Native American Tribe notes (mostly in class)

Daily 5: We read "Firestorm" this week, and are digging in to being a "close" reader for deeper comprehension.

Some cool sites we used this week in our learning: Wonderopolis and TweenTribune

ELA: Possessive/Plural nouns

Writing: We're starting to discuss research requirements next week for our Native American project (Stay Tuned!)

We spent a lot of time MAP testing this week! Please check with your student re: his/her scores! We'll also be discussing these at conferences coming up! MAP testing on the iPad is very convenient, but because it's new, of course it's having glitches. Your students have been extremely patient throughout this process. They did a great job!
