Friday Dress Code
If you need another flyer of which day (team, college, career, PSE) corresponds to which Friday of the month have your child ask their teacher. Also, there are several announcements made each week on the afternoon announcements, so your child should know what to dress for.
If your child chooses not to dress in the appropriate gear for that Friday then he/she should still be in full dress code. (A solid polo and jeans/khakis.)
If your child were to complete the reading packet early in the week he/she should still be reading at least 20 minutes each night. A typical 4th grade student should already have reading stamina built to read longer than 20 minutes.
What's going on in the classroom?
Reading: We are continuing our study of the American Revolutionary War. This week students are researching a topic of their choosing from the war, they are going to perfect how to write a summary and share with a classmate by the end of the week. I wish you could witness the research your kids are doing!
Science: Students are continuing to research using their new understanding of maps. They were able to analyze weather patterns from weather maps to make their own weather forecasts! (Seen in pictures below) Next week we will begin wrapping up our Earth Science unit by focusing on Earth's natural resources and how we, as humans, effect the world around us.
