Thanksgiving Feasts this week!
4th grade classes go on Thursday.
Our time is 12:00 – 12:45. You are welcome to check your child out from the classroom after the feast. We will be sharing our narratives and showing some of the weather reports we have completed after the feast. You are welcome to stay. After that we will have some outdoor recess if weather permits. I am looking forward to seeing all of you and meeting your extended families.

We are at the MID-WAY point of the 9 weeks. That means you should have completed at least 3 Reading Graphic Organizers. Pleases encourage your child to read non-fiction as well as fiction. Also, please read over the organizers before sending them in.
Grades have been updated so I hope you have looked at them with your child and discussed their progress with them. Again, be sure to be reviewing papers coming home in the red folder.
We will finish being meteorologists and have a weather test on Wednesday.
Our next unit is Ecosystems, which will prepare us for our Schoolyard Habitat project along with Project Hero. Also, we will be researching chickens to prepare for hatching in January.
We have finished patterns in math and are moving on to multiplication as comparisons and determining area. After the break we will do area model and distributive method of multiplying. After that we moved to partial product multiplication.
