Good Morning Parents,
Our class has earned a party for walking the halls quietly, following rules and working hard in the classroom. This class has beat my record for fastest party earned! Our party will be Monday afternoon. Students may wear pajamas on Monday and bring an electronic device or game to play with. The device will not be hooked up to the internet. Students will also be able to use their Chromebooks, but only on approved sites. They are welcome to bring a healthy snack to share with the class, or a single snack.
Scholastic orders are in for this month. However, you can still order online using the class code of GWD9L. This will put it on my class and Scholastic will let me know you put in an order. I will then go in and process it right away. Thank you to all who ordered this month. I was able to get 8 Because of Winn Dixie, to replace those that are falling apart, free. Our whole school reading book for October will be Journey to the Center of the Earth. We will be scheduling a celebration for this book at the end of October. If you are interested in being in charge of food or games, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are halfway through with the book Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing in reading. The students have written a news article and performed a commercial they made up. They just love the characters in it.
They are also working on their own fictional narrative. I can't wait to read these!
Don't forget to have your child read 120 minutes a week!
Math is a new program called Learnzillion. The fourth grade lessons are written by 4th grade teachers to go with the common core standards. IXL also is aligned to the common core standards. We are working on factors and multiples at this time. All of the D section of ixl works on multiplication, factors and multiples. Remember, ixl.com/signin/visioncharter, 80 minutes a week at home, for 100 points a week!
Our spelling test is tomorrow. The words can be found on this blog to the left of this newsletter.
Thank you so much for letting me teach your children!
