Message from Mrs. Langston

We are off to another fabulous week in fourth grade! I am hoping to meet with all parents or guardians within the next two weeks. I have a great deal of information to share with you about your child's progress so far this year. I will be conducting conferences via zoom, in person, or by phone call. Please sign up below for a time in Sign Up Genius to let me know your conference preferences.

Don't forget: Wednesday is a holiday to celebrate Veterans Day and a day off for students and teachers. Enjoy the day!

Fall Conferences with Mrs. Langston

I look forward to meeting with you in person or talking with you on zoom or by phone. I will have a lot of information to share with you, but please feel free to come with questions or concerns. Please choose a time that is best for you!

Learning Goals for the Week

ELA: I can determine a theme of a story, drama, or poem from details in the text; summarize the text.

Math: I can explain that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents 10 times as much as it represents in the place to its right, up to 100,000.

Science: I can understand the causes of day and night. I can recognize the phases of the moon.

Classroom Needs

We each lunch everyday at 11:00am. By 2:00pm our students are hungry. Each child should bring a snack each day. I do provide snacks for those who forget, but lately most of the class is forgetting a snack. Please help me out with this matter.

Paper Towels and cleansing wipes (clorox or any kind) are greatly needed!

I'm done! Now what?
