A glimpse into your child's past week! February 11
What We're Up To:
I am still spend a lot of time "babysitting". The tattling is at an all time high and we've had a lot of discussions regarding when it is necessary to come to me about what someone else is doing or saying and when it is best to ignore it. I think many of the kids in this class should consider law enforcement for careers... as long as they don't have to follow the rules! :)

We have also been learning that forces can be large or small (strong/weak). Next week students will learn about spring scales and will use them to measure force. We will measure using a unit called newtons. Newtons measure force.
Students took their MId-Year District Math Assessment on Monday. Now that that's behind us, we have begun our study of Fractions. Thank you for reminding your child of the importance of completing their nightly (10-15 min) Math homework.
The February Reflex Challenge (a pink sheet located in your child's binder) should be returned on February 29, the last day of the month. A surprise treat is included with the return of this packet, ON TIME!!!
The Reflex math program is the $1600 program grant I received at the beginning of this school year. The focus is on math fact fluency. I can't wait to hear feedback from the 4th grade teachers on how much more fluent this group of kids will be with their facts!!!
Please make sure the new reading log is being submitted each Wednesday. The students that turned theirs in this week did a great job for their first time! It was great to read the connections they are making to the books they are reading. THIS is how we grow as readers.
