4K Weekly Update

Conferences

Don't forget to sign up for conferences! They will be held February 23rd and 25th. These will NOT be student led, but if your child comes there will be things they can share. If your child does not come, or you are unable to make it, they will bring the items home to share.

ISU Practicum Student

Our classroom will be hosting an ISU practicum student starting on Thursday. Her name is Lindsay Kelty, and she is a CPU graduate! She will join us all day every Thursday and Friday for 4 weeks in a row. Please let me know if you have any questions about this!

Reading

This week and next we will be working on "The Earth Dragon Awakes." This is historical fiction about the San Francisco earthquake of 1906. We will be working on determining fact versus fiction. Remember to have your child share the story with you from www.ThinkCentral.com.

Math

We are continuing to focus on multiplication. Your child has been taught the partial product method for one digit times up to four digits. Next, we will be working on two-digit times two-digit. I have shared a video below explaining partial product. We will also be learning the traditional method eventually.
