It is hard to believe that the holidays are here, and winter break will be here before we know it! Students are wrapping up the last few weeks of the 2nd quarter of 4th grade, and have been working hard in all areas of curriculum. Students are currently working on winter writing in Language Arts, of which will be displayed on the 4th grade bulletin board. Students have been working hard to convert measurements in both metric and customary units, and will soon begin working on two-digit multiplication, and eventually division as well. We will close out the year 2019 by finishing up our study on Colonial Life and the American Revolution within Virginia Studies. Please let me know if you have any questions in regards to our curriculum and pacing. As always, thank you so much for supporting your little HAWK and for supporting our classroom and school.
Please check and SIGN your childs agenda/planner daily for any upcoming test, important dates or reminders. Weekly folders will go home every Friday, and need to be returned on Monday. Please check for the "Sign and Return" stamp on any papers. In addition to the planner and Friday Folder, you will also receive a monthly newsletter with information regarding important dates, testing and information about the curriculum.
Reading is very important to your child's vocabulary and comprehension development in 4th grade so please encourage them to read nightly and to challenge themselves. You can help your childs reading comprehension by asking them to read to you, reading aloud to them, or asking them questions while they are reading. Please let me know if you or your child need help with picking books, or if you need additional resources.
Also, please be sure to remind your child to bring a warm jacket for PE and RECESS!
Thank you for your support! It would not be possible without YOU!
