Locke's Letter

What's Happening in Room 313?

Dates to Remember:

Thursday 11/19- You are invited to our 4th grade "Character Breakfast". Students have been working on biographies of important people and will share about their influential person, dressed like or representing that character. We will host this in your student's classroom beginning at 8:00 AM on Thursday. We will have pastries for parents ONLY. Students will need to eat breakfast that morning.

Friday 11/20- Claxton Book Fair begins. The book fair runs through December 2nd. Please see Kirstin Barrett in the media center if you'd like to volunteer to help.

Monday 11/23- Raleigh Payment #2 due! Please send in $35.00 with your child NO LATER than Monday, November 23rd. We will be sending out reminders on Friday, November 20th.

Wednesday 11/25- Thanksgiving holiday begins. No school Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.

What Are We Learning This Week??

Math: In math this week, we will begin our unit on division. Division is directly tied to multiplication, so please continue to support your student by making sure that they are comfortable with their basic multiplication facts!


Language Arts: We will continue accountability in daily five this week! Each day, the students will track their choices and what they accomplished during each round. Students will have the option to listen to reading, read to someone, read to self, work on words, and work on writing. We are focusing on author's reasoning and evidence, so students will be pulling evidence from the text to support an author's point.


During writing, we will continue our unit on biographic sketches. We will continue drafting and begin publishing our pieces this week to make sure that we are ready for our character breakfast on Thursday! Please help your child by aiding them in creating a costume that represents their character.


Science: We will be taking a pause on science this week in order to sufficiently prepare students for the character breakfast event this week.

Claxton Holiday Lunch

On Friday, November 20th we will be having our annual Thanksgiving Lunch. The cafeteria will serve Turkey&dressing, gravy, cranberry sauce, green beans, mashed potatoes, rolls and fruit. The cost of the meal is $5.00 per person.


Our class will be eating lunch from 11:33-11:58. If you would like to join us for lunch please send in the salmon colored invite that was sent home in Thursday folders last week or RSVP by email at kathleen.locke@asheville.k12.nc.us.


I look forward to seeing you there!
