4S Classroom Connections

First Week

We had a great first week to the school year. Despite the warm and sticky weather, the kids persevered and showed great effort in completing the beginning of the year assessments slated for back to school week. I am enjoying getting to know your child bit by bit as they become comfortable with our classroom.

Book Order

I sent home several book orders with your child today. If you wish to order, please do so on- line or send the payment and slips back to school by Friday, September 11th.


We will start spelling next. On Tuesday, your child will bring home a yellow sheet of paper with the words for the week on it. You can practice these words at home as you have time. Word tests will be on Fridays each week.

What Are We Learning?

Reading: We are in a fiction unit learning about how form interpretations about the characters we are reading about.

Writing: We are starting a narrative story.

Math: We will be working with place value.

Language: We will be learning about relative pronouns.

Have a safe and relaxing Holiday weekend!
