October: During the month of October, students and faculty will work together to increase our water consumption during the school day by challenging ourselves to drink 2,000L by October 31. Please send a water bottle with your child to school each day so he/she can join in and help us exceed our goal.
If your child attends after school care, please be patient as we deal with weather extremes. We do not go outside if the heat index is 95 degrees or above. In this case, we will play in the gym.
To see where in the building your child is at when you arrive for pickup.
Depending on when you arrive, your child might be on the playground, room 18, etc. As we get into the flow of the year, you'll pick up the pattern very quickly. The app will show you exactly where they are located, though.
Fourth Grade Overview
September 23-27, 2019
BIBLE: The whole school is memorizing Psalm 23. Each student will RECITE the memory work ALOUD to Mr. Kane. Our first test will be on Monday, September 30.
“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.” Psalm 23:1-3.
LANGUAGE ARTS: We’ve spent much of this week introducing Writer’s Workshop. We’ve also been able to spend some time working on improving sentence fluency in our writing. We’ll spend a few more days (and in to next week) working with Writer’s Workshop lessons. Then we’ll begin our second English unit. In this unit, students will work with nouns. They will learn about common, proper, and possessive nouns. Additionally, they will work with some rules for spelling singular and plural nouns
READING: Students now have NIGHTLY reading homework (Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and some Fridays). There is a daily Reading Assignment Sheet in the F&F section of their binders. Even if your child is absent they can use this sheet to at least keep up with the class reading. They also have NEW study materials for F&F Unit 2, Sequence of Events, in their binders. Begin now helping your child study the vocabulary, synonyms, and antonyms. They should also begin learning how to draw and label our visual tool, as well as learn the process questions and how each relates to the visual tool.
SPELLING: Activity Sheet 3 and its accompanying list is in binders. Activity Sheets are due Wednesday, September 25, and the test will be on Friday, September 27.
MATH: We had fun reviewing multiplication facts in our “jungle fishing” room yesterday. Next week we are continuing in Chapter 2 on addition and subtraction.
SOCIAL STUDIES: We will focus on the important events of the Revolutionary War. VIP of Revolutionary War Projects are due September 30.
