Recess is not only about releasing energy and exercising. It is also gives our students time to socialize with all 4th graders. We all need time to be with our friends.
The next few weeks will focus on:
Number and operations. The student applies mathematical process standards to represent, compare, and order whole numbers and decimals and understand relationships related to place value.
Our focus this week was:
interpreting the value of each place-value position as 10 times the position to the right and as one-tenth of the value of the place to its left

representing the value of the digit in whole numbers through 1,000,000,000 and decimals to the hundredths using expanded notation and numerals
Spelling tests will begin next week. I am currently in a beta testing group for spellingcity.com and will be utilizing the site for spelling assessments this year. My students enjoyed it last year but we only used it for a short period of time. I will send home flyers with student logins so you can view their progress. Spellingcity also has 35+ games that students can play using their word lists. Twenty five minutes of activity on spellingcity at home counts for the spelling portion of the homework that week.
