What are we learning?

Math: Students have already been working with more adding/subtracting strategies, estimation, and being introduced to our new student reference book. We have just dived into solving word problems and looking into different strategies when solving subtraction and addition!

Math Homework - Word problems sheet has been handed out and is due this Friday!

Reading: Students are still currently working on being able to pick out the right books for them and building stamina to become endurance readers. As fourth graders we are exploring genres and getting to know ourselves as readers. This week we will be working on comprehension strategies and close reading.

Reading Homework - Students have just received book logs from Reading Round-Up(they do not have to participate in Reading Round-Up, but I do need the logs filled out to keep track of their reading minutes for a reading grade). They are expected to read a minimum requirement of 20 minutes a night or at least a 100 minutes by Friday. Reading logs will be checked on Fridays, so they will need to stay in the students binders to get a grade.

BP Reminders:

Transportation - If your child is ever changing transportation, please send a written note from a guardian. Otherwise you will need to contact the office. These methods ensure that your precious kiddos get home safely.

PTA- Don't forget to search Bell Prairie Elementary PTA on facebook and "like" their page, to keep up on what's happening at BP.
