If you would like to purchase a class picture, please send $10 in the envelope provided that was sent home. If you misplaced your envelope, you may send $10 in and I will have a picture envelope for your child.

Snacks and Cleansing Wipes Appreciated

Donations for these items are always appreciated!

After lunch, students clean their desks and wash their hands. Our class is in great need of cleansing/sanitizing wipes.

Multiplication and Extra Math Practice

At this point in the fourth grade year, practicing multiplication facts and constantly reviewing our math curriculum is strongly encouraged. I recommend practicing 10 minutes on multiplication and 20 minutes on the Fourth Grade Math Review Smore located below.

We are also in need of snacks. Each student must bring a snack if they would like one for our 2:00 snack time each day. We welcome extras for those who forget.

Special Valentines' Day Snack

We will have a special snack on Friday, February 12 at 2:00p.m. which is our normal snack time. Please sign up for anything you are able to send in by Friday.

Learning Goals for the Week

ELA: Learning how to infer meaning from a fictional text. I can refer to details and examples in a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.

Parents: Inferring is the ability to draw a conclusion based not only on evidence in the text, but reasoning.

Math: Fractions

I can explain why a fraction is equivalent to another fraction by using area and length fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size.

*We will continue to review division using the partial quotient method.

Social Studies: Government

I can learn the chronology of key historical events in North Carolina history; understand how and why North Carolina was established; explain how people, events and developments brought about changes to communities in various regions of North Carolina.

Multiplication Practice Always Needed

All students need to be reviewing their multiplication facts each night!
