Ms. Smith's Fourth Grade Newsletter
We will have a short Valentine's Day celebration the afternoon of Friday, February 12th. If your child would like to bring Valentine's Day cards, they are more than welcome. However, please ensure that there is one Valentine for every student!
Class List (26 students):
The overall RIT scores in math and reading are comprised of goal performance areas which are reported in ranges rather than specific scores. In math these areas are: Operations and Algebraic Thinking, Number and Operations, Measurement and Data, and Geometry. The goal performance areas in reading are: Literature, Informational Text, and Vocabulary Acquisition and Use.
If you and your student are looking for a little at-home practice, these two links will bring you to a list of activities based on a specific MAP score range in each of the break-down areas that are listed above.
I would be happy to let you know your student's goal performance range for each of the aforementioned areas so that you can better target your student's needs. Just shoot me an email!

In social studies we are studying the Midwest region. We are reading an Ebook about the economy, history, and people. We also went on a field trip and we learned about agriculture in the Midwest. They taught us lots of things like one bushel of corn is about 60 lbs.
