Report Card Day!
Today your child will be bringing home their 3rd nine weeks report card. One more nine weeks to go before they head out the door to 5th grade. We are so proud of how many of them are working so hard and proving they are ready for 5th grade! They are taking ownership of their learning and putting hard work and dedication into making sure they are learning everything they need to know, not only academically but socially and emotionally to be the best they can be! Keep encouraging them to stay organized and coming to school prepared daily with their needed supplies, homework, and positive attitudes. We have lots more to learn and do!!!

Measure angles in whole-number degrees using a protractor. Sketch angles of specified measure.
Recognize angle measure as additive. When an angle is decomposed into non-overlapping parts, the angle measure of the whole is the sum of the angle measures of the parts. Solve addition and subtraction problems to find unknown angles on a diagram in real world and mathematical problems, e.g., by using an equation with a symbol for the unknown angle measure.
Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.
Classify two-dimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or perpendicular lines, or the presence or absence of angles of a specified size. Recognize right triangles as a category, and identify right triangles
