Thank you to all of you that were able to attend conferences this past week! It was nice to share what we are doing in fourth grade as well as get your insights regarding your child.
This week our fourth grade students began a new unit in language workshop. The theme of the unit, "Is conflict inevitable in a relationship?", already has generated interesting conversations with our students. Soon our fourth graders will be completing a narrative piece of writing and moving on to opinion writing.
Our fourth graders worked with new vocabulary this week - factors, multiples, prime numbers, and composite numbers. They also reflected on how they felt about math so far this year and what they'd like to see during math in the coming months.
Please look for the "party preference" survey that your child should have brought home, complete it, and have your child return it to school as soon as possible. We will start making plans for our Fall Harvest party early next week.
Have a great weekend!
Lynn, Marcia, and Chris
