Change in the Weather

It has been hard not to notice the change in the weather outside. It definitely has gotten colder. Brrrrrr! The students are outside for 15 minutes in the morning and afternoon and up to 30 minutes at lunch time. Please make sure that they have the proper attire to be outside for this amount of time. If the temps are too cold we do have inside recess time, but it has to be pretty frigid outside before we make that call. Thank you!

Math

Today we started the Unit 2b math assessment. This assessment checks to make sure students understand multiplying larger digits. Our next unit will be division! I am looking forward to showing them the fun methods in this unit. Keep your eye out for the Unit 3 homework packet it will come home in the next week or so.

English/Language Arts

Yep! Still assessing. The students started writing a fairytale today. I can't wait to see what they come up with. Our next unit of study in writing will be to write an opinion piece of writing. It should be fun reading the opinions of fourth graders.
