4HA Weekly News
18th April 2014
I would also like to thank you for the kind birthday wishes and gifts I received yesterday. My apartment now looks and smells beautiful, and the children's cards brought a tear to my eye. Special thanks to Chi Nguyen, Linh Dan's mom, for the amazing cake! The picture below doesn't do it justice!
We have a busy week ahead, so I hope everyone has a chance to rest and relax over the weekend. The children have been very concerned about the ferry disaster, so they will probably be very interested in keeping up with the news this weekend.
In reading, we spent lots of time in our reading groups. The children are enjoying their novels, and they are gathering ideas to blog about. Most of the children in the class were involved in extra rehearsals with Ms. Moon, and she has been very impressed with their commitment to learning their lines.
Next week, we will take part in some special activities for Library Week with Ms. Kersting. This will be an excellent opportunity to celebrate our love of books and reading. We will also practice using commas and colons, and avoiding run-on sentences.
Next week, we will discuss symmetry and measuring angles, and we will practice some problem solving related to time and money. The money problems that we will solve will help the students to understand calculations involving decimals.

Please make sure that your child gets a good sleep and healthy breakfast before these tests. I am sure they will all do a fantastic job!
