Ms. Smith's Class

April 1, 2016

What is Happening Next Week in Class:

Math:

- We will be starting our unit on angles.


Reading:

- We will be looking at different text structures.


Writing: We will be working on a choice writing, and going through the writing process.


Science/Social Studies:

- We will be working on our force and motion unit.

Spelling

Until after MAP tests, 4th grade is not going to be doing spelling, instead we are going to focus on MAP prep work. This will begin after spring break, and with a short week next week, I decided that we will not have words next week either. We will be looking at parts of speech, vocabulary, etc...

Homework:

80 minutes of reading is due every Friday.

Homework is sent home on Friday the week before it is due. The lessons have not been taught yet, but are all completed by Thursday. Students are welcome to take home math notes/practice from class to help with homework.

Weekly Progress

I have added a page to the students' Friday folders, it is a form that allows me to communicate with you on how your child is meeting classroom expectations. There is a comment spot at the bottom. Feel free to write any questions there. Also, there is a spot for parent initials, to ensure that you have received it, please initial and send back on Monday.
