Newsletter September 9th

Date: September 8, 2019 Author: Mrs. Fraas Categories: Newsletter 0

Thank you to each of you who were able to make it to Back to School Night.  It means a lot that you took time out of your busy schedule to learn about what we are doing in 4th grade.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.  I will be sending out a sign up for volunteers, which I plan on starting in October.  I would love to have parents file on Fridays or Mondays, work with kids in small groups and grade “simple” papers.  🙂 I already have a few moms who have offered to plan parties and Art Smart moms.  Thank you so much!  I have posted the PowerPoint for those of you who weren’t able to make it.  I also sent all the papers I went over home with your child.  If you haven’t seen them, please check their backpack.

Book Order

There will be book orders coming home in your child’s Monday folder.  They will be due on September 23rd.  You can place orders online using our class code, H3P7Z.  This is a great way to build your child’s library and our class receives points to purchase books for our classroom library.  Win Win!

FOOD FOR THOUGHT
EVERY CHILD DESERVES A CHAMPION: AN ADULT WHO WILL NEVER GIVE UP ON THEM, WHO UNDERSTANDS THE POWER OF CONNECTION AND INSISTS THEY BECOME THE BEST THEY CAN POSSIBLY BE.

Academic News

This week, we focused on ten times more/less using a place value chart, writing numbers in standard, word and expanded form and we used Skittles for a fun place value activity comparing numbers.  Skittles make everything fun…:)  

In ELA, we learned what a good summarization should include.  We practiced with Little Red Riding Hood.  We will continue summarizing next week. 

In Idaho History, we learned how to read a map and how to find locations on a map using latitude and longitude.

Writing- Summaries

We will spend the next two weeks focusing on Summarizing as our Priority Standard.  Students will be able to write a summary focusing on important information.  We talked about how summaries don’t include opinions or fun facts they may have known, but did not read in the text.  We also talked about TMI…Too Much Information in a summary… 🙂 

Social Studies- Idaho History (Symbols of Idaho) continued…
