Miss Lotter's Leaders
Parent Newsletter September 28-October 1
Fourth Grade Parents,
Peek at the Week!
Math: In math this week, we will be creating and solving addition and subtraction word problems. These are complex tasks and ideas, so I am excited to see the creative thinking processes that the students use! We also will be having a test on Friday that will include place value, addition, subtraction, and word problems. If you could remind your child to study for that throughout the week, that would be greatly appreciated!
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.
During writing, we will continue writing our personal narratives as we go through the writing process over a period of time.
Science: This week in science, we are starting our unit on phases of the moon! I love teaching about the moon phases because it is a hands-on unit where students will be participating in several demonstrations and simulations. Ask your child about the phases of the moon this week!
Leader of the Week!
