October News

Tonight, October 5, the students will be singing at 6:30 the songs that they have been learning.  I hope to see everyone there.  They were excited today when they left.

Tomorrow night, October 6, is the FAll FESTIVAL from 5 to 8PM.  It will be a fun evening with games, basket raffles, and food.

Our field trip to the Youth Museum is next Tuesday, October 10th.  If you have not returned the permission slip, please do so by Monday, October 9th.  

Tomorrow you will be getting the conference form.  Please return these to me by Tuesday, October 10th.  If you need to request another time, go ahead and email me as soon as possible.  I want to have the opportunity to talk with each of you.

Lots of Effort Being Shown in the Classroom!        September 14, 2017

   WE have been busy workers this three day week.  The children have completed the first part of our reading of the book, Love That Dog.  We will begin reading The Sign of the Beaver on Friday.  This book will tie into our unit on Native Americans.  

The students have learned about the different types of clouds.  When you are outside with your child, ask him or her to identify the type of cloud.  WE also have a display of the clouds we have made outside our room.

Next week, we will resume having a reading log to be completed Monday – Thursday night at home.  As always, the reading log will be due on Friday morning.  In addition to the reading being done at home, the kids are reading for at least 20 minutes in class.  Building this stamina for reading has been shown to improve scores on testing.

I am excited about the progress that I am seeing being made with showing mastery of the multiplication facts.  While this is a third grade skill, time needed to be given to “refresh” students’ fluency with the facts 0 – 10.  What makes me so excited now is when the kids know they have passed the mini drill and talk to me about it.  This makes their teacher HAPPY!!!!

All BOX TOPS for EDUCATION need to be turned in by September 22!  I have family members saving them, and I have a bag full.  Maybe we can be the winning class.

4th Week of Fourth Grade is Almost Complete

This morning during our class meeting I told the students that by Friday we will have finished 4 weeks of  school.  During these four weeks, the students have been learning routines, taking several pretests, learning and adjusting to fourth grade expectations, and making new friends.  I am excited about the way that everything is coming together for our class.

This week the students will take the water cycle test and the first spelling test.  I look forward to seeing their progress.  Every Thursday the students will take a spelling pretest for the next week’s list.  I look at their score on the spelling pretest to determine which spelling words they will have.

We are still finishing up The Lemonade War book.  I look for us to finish it by Tuesday of next week.  After we complete it, the class will review economics by identifying examples of the economics vocabulary found in the story and then we will take the economics test.  Continue to help your child review these terms for the assessment.

If you have any questions about your child’s progress after you have looked at their graded papers, do not hesitate to send me an email at [email protected]

The First Week of Fourth Grade was Awesome!


Last week was my first week of fourth grade, since I moved from third grade to fourth grade at the end of May.  Although I loved third grade, fourth grade has always appealed to me.  I am excited I made the move and have the opportunity to work with your child this school year.  I am looking forward to an amazing school year!

I look forward to talking with the parents of my students at Open House on Thursday, August 1oth.  The first session will be from 6:30 – 7:00 pm and the second session will run from 7:10 – 7:40 pm.  Please make plans to attend one of the open house sessions so that you can learn more about academics,  study guides, assessments, homework, field trips, and more.
