All are invited to attend Jefferson's Music Program at the Johnny Carson Theater on Tuesday, December 10th. Doors open at 6:30. It will be an entertaining night! Please come and support our children for their hard work!


The students are doing a fantastic job completing their weekly homework. Each day the students are assigned 30 math problems in class. As the math concepts get more difficult the students might be bringing home more homework. Please assist your child with any questions they might have on their daily work.

Here are the lessons we will cover this week:

Monday - Investigation 4B - Decimals

Tuesday - Lesson 41 - Subtracting Across Zero

Wednesday - Lesson 42 - Rounding Numbers to Estimate

Thursday - Lesson 43 - Adding and Subtracting Decimals

Friday - Test 7

Also, please encourage a few minutes of daily math fact practice! IXL.com is a fantastic website to sharpen those skills!

Spelling Homework

In your child's planner you will find their weekly spelling "menu" board. The students need to refer to this document to complete their daily spelling homework. Each student completes 4 spelling activities a week. Their spelling test is on Friday.

This week's spelling words are all words with suffixes (Unit 2 - Week 5). Encourage daily practice and be sure to check your child's planner for spelling homework. Also, take advantage of SpellingCity ... great resource and makes studying for spelling fun!

Fourth Grade Resources

I created this LiveBinder this summer for my new fourth grade scholars! This binder is full of helpful websites and tools to assist your child. It's similar to a virtual live bookmarking website. I update the binder often! Enjoy!
