Weekly Update April 23rd

Hello all!

I am sending out this update a little earlier than normal because we have some information from the STEM committee regarding a fundraiser. The flier is coming home in Thursday Folders today.

Please make sure all money is placed in an envelope with the student’s name and my name on it with the order form inside as well. (Sorry if it’s blurry!)

I have also created another Sign-Up Genius for a fun activity we are doing in 2 weeks. Thank you in advance for any and all donations!

Weekly Update April 9th

I hope everyone had a fabulous Spring Break! Can you believe there are only 33 days left in the school year?! Our schedule will be crazy over the next few days with Milestone testing starting. Just wanted to give you a schedule overview for testing days:

Testing starts first thing in the morning, so students must be on time

Recess- 10:40-11:10

Lunch – 11:22-11:52

Specials- 1:40-2:10

This will be our schedule for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Monday, and Tuesday. Friday of this week will be normal schedule since 4th grade is not testing on that day.

Thank you to everyone who signed up to send in a snack or drink during testing days! Please just send them in with your child in the morning. Just so you know, we have 26 students in our class.  🙂

We will be starting our next novel study on Wednesday of this week. Please check out the reading page for the schedule. Yes, there will be some chapters due during testing, but students will have more than an hour in class on Friday to work on this, so hopefully they can get it done then!

There will be no math homework for the next 2 weeks!

I have put together a tentative calendar through the end of the year.

Weekly Update March 26th

One week until Spring Break! Here’s a breakdown of our week:

Monday- Today was a Target Day. Students performed their plays. Check out Twitter for pictures!

Tuesday- Review of reading and grammar. In math we will be focusing on metric measurement. Fire Safety HW due today.

Wednesday- Review of reading and grammar. In math we will be reviewing metric and customary measurement and taking a grade on it. Students will be able to use their conversion tables on the grade. We also have counseling today.

Thursday- Fire Safety Field Trip: Students should wear shorts or pants with their 4th grade class shirt. If you are bringing a lunch, please make sure it is in a disposable bag with your name and my name on it.

Friday- Measurement test. Students will be able to use their conversion tables on the test. Arts Jubilee Day! Math HW due today.

If your student will be out or leaving earl on Friday, please let me know ASAP.

Here is the 4th Grade Milestone Study Guide: Grade-4_StudyGuide

We will be working on most of it in class, but if students would like to work on it at home, they may. MobyMax Test Prep is also an option to prepare. I am not worried about any student not doing well on the Milestone Tests, so just preparing in class is fine, too!

Please let me know if you have any questions!
