4th Grade News

September 16, 2016

Welcome!

Thank you for making Reading Night a fun success! It's been a busy week of learning, and we are excited to see how your children are stretching their thinking and writing in all content areas.


Table Talk:

* Tell me about an input-output table. How can this help you solve math problems?

* How does water change states (solid, liquid, gas)?

* What does it mean to be responsible?

* Tell me about the book you are reading. Why did you choose that book?

* How do you write a great lead and hook your reader?

* What are the five steps of the writing process?



Sincerely,


Mrs. Coronado, Ms. Self, Mrs. Dwyer, Mrs. Hill, Mrs. Rubalcava, and Mrs. Burgess

Snack Time

• A healthy snack may be brought to class each day. Please make sure any snack is dry (no fruit cups or items which will be eaten with a spoon/fork). Also, both of our classrooms are peanut-free classrooms, so please keep this in mind as you help pack your child’s snack. Snack will be eaten mid-morning.

• A spill proof or lidded water bottle may be brought to have in the classroom (no drinks other than water and no additives such as a crystal light powder packet).

Spelling Tests

Spelling Tests will be given every Friday. Students have been given a list with the rest of the 6 weeks words on them. Students are expected to keep up with their list throughout the six weeks. If one is lost, check the ELA teacher's (Ms. Self, Mrs. Hill, Mrs. Rubalcava) websites for an electronic copy.

Spelling homework will be assigned after the first six weeks. However, students should be practicing these words at home to prepare them for the test.

Blue Cards

Blue Cards will be set up and in folders/binders on Monday - this is the behavioral card that was known as the " white card" in third grade. If we see a trending behavior that students are struggling with we will put a mark that day under the correct category. Please check these daily and if you see a mark or sad face, please initial so that we know you are aware (We will send home an email or call as well). These marks will directly influence their citizenship on the report card, the scale is on the bottom of the cards.
