Dear Parents,

We are beginning another exciting week in fourth grade!  Thank you so much for sending in all of the yummy baked goods for The Water Challenge Bake Sale!  It was a huge success!  I am looking forward to seeing each of you during conference week.   Please contact me with any questions or concerns.

Important Dates:

Friday:  The students will take a math quiz over area models (Students will need to know how to draw area models for single digit by multi-digit multiplication and double digit by double digit multiplication.)  Check your child’s math journal for examples.  I have also posted multiplication videos on the blog.

The students will take their spelling test.  Spelling words should be studied nightly.

October 21-27:  Conference Week (Early Dismissal @ 12:20)

October 7:  Kroger Math Night

October 22:  School Spirit Day

November 25 – 29: Thanksgiving Break

Oh the places we are going with our learning this week:

Math:  We will review the single digit by multi-digit area model for multiplication.  We will move to the double digit by double digit area model for multiplication.  Your child will be coming home with notes in his or her math journal.

Reading:  We are continuing to read, The One and Only Ivan.  We will explore the literary elements of character, setting, and theme.  In guided reading, the students are practicing finding the main idea.

Language Arts:  We will continue our unit on verbs.  The students will create “scenes” in their narrative writing.  We will be learning about the story arc and how to add action to our writing.

Social Studies:  We are continuing our map skills unit.

Thank you for your continued support.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns!
