Math

Mrs. Close's Class ~ We are about halfway through Module 2. Next week we'll finish the unit and most likely test on Thursday. Keep the Exit Ticket corrections coming my way!



Mr. Hart's Class ~ Today we took the Module 1 assessment. I will correct them over the weekend. You should see you child bring them home for you to see early next week. Monday we will begin a rather short module on unit conversions and problem solving with metric measurement. There are a total of 5 lessons so we should be finished the week of the 23rd. One question I was asked many times at open house was how can I help my child with math? One of the biggest things you can do is help your child master the basic addition, subtraction, and multiplication facts. These basic facts truly are the foundation of what we do in fourth grade math.

Longhouse Project

The kids will begin building on Monday! Today, they spent time planning their project. Their homework this weekend is to check in with the adults at home to make sure they can bring in the supplies. Please send in materials on Monday. Low temperature glue guns will be used to hold the bark in place. Below is a picture of the "skeleton" of the longhouse. This should be a lot of fun!

Science

Please note that all foods have to be purchased from a store or bakery. Those of contributing veggies, if you send them in, I'll wash and cut.
