Happy Monday Parents! I hope everyone had a great weekend.


Early Release is at 3:05 this Thursday 11/ 20.


Anytime is the temperature and/or windchill is 25 below we will have indoor recess. Please make sure that your child is prepared with winter coats, gloves, and a hat.


Reminder- next week we will only have school on Monday and Tuesday. I will be absent both days for my Honeymoon.


We have a new class Webpage! It is still in the beginning stages but will continue to grow and become more useful! You can access the link at the bottom of the newsletter OR


here's the link: https://sites.google.com/site/crestviewwilliams/


It would be awesome if students used the resource tab and practiced on StudyIsland and Kakoom at home!

Reading

Today we looked at how Myths have inspired different saying that we use today---"He's got the Midas Touch." After learning about Myths, students used their knowledge of mythology to determine the meaning of these common saying. Here are some of our short skits. (Videos are on a private Youtube account, they cannot be viewed outside of our newsletter)


Later in the week will begin immersing ourselves in Fables to determine the theme of the story.


Don't forget to be reading 20 minutes every night with your child. November reading logs will be sent home tomorrow!

Math

We just finished Unit 3-- Multiplication and Division. Please continue to go over these facts with your student at home. It is important to have these memorized by the end of fourth grade.


This week we will begin Unit 4 --Reviewing symmetry and move into geometry and measuring angles!



Math Folder: Folders will be coming home today. There is one worksheet students can work on throughout the week along with practicing their flashcards or Multiplication Game. Working on study Island will also count for math folder minutes.



Homework: Given Wednesday, due Friday!

Writing

Students are continuing to draft their informational brochures. We will focus on finding the main idea, subtopics and supporting details. As we are drafting we working on having exciting leads to draw our readers in and have them continue to read our information.
