Monday-MLK Holiday. No school.
This week’s spelling list comes from our Journey’s book. It is a story about Dr. Martin Luther King titled My Brother Martin.
Welcome back! We are back in the full swing of fourth grade. The kids came back ready to work. I am so proud of how well we behaved and put effort into our work this first week.
With that being said, let me take a moment to thank each and every one of the parents for their involvement and help in our Christmas party. The party was a huge success! A special thanks to Tina Millwood and Lauren Thompson for calling and getting everything assigned. The kids had a blast! I would also like to thank all of the parents and students for the many wonderful gifts. Things were so busy during the party that I didn’t get to personally write thank you notes, and I apologize for that. However, the gifts were all greatly appreciated!
This past week our students started learning about Expository Writing and how to include SPLASHES to elaborate. Each child should have brought home their notes to be signed. Make sure you ask them what the How and Why CAFE’ means.
Spelling for next week comes from our Reading textbook and the story Me and Uncle Romie. The following are our words. They are already on Spelling City, so have your kids start practicing.
In Science, we are learning about Earth’s Natural Resources. We will be learning about renewable and nonrenewable resources and what we can do to conserve them. We also will be talking about how we can recycle certain items to help our environment.
Progress reports were sent home with your child today. Please look over these, sign, and return it on Tuesday, November 25. Also, don’t forget that tomorrow is an early release day for all students. The students will dismiss at 11:30 from the Intermediate campus. Enjoy the long Thanksgiving break!
It’s hard to believe that it is almost Thanksgiving! Intermediate students will be dismissed at 11:30 on November 25. Classes will resume on Monday, December 1. I am so thankful for each of you that are in my class this year. May you have a wonderful and relaxing holiday time giving thanks to our wonderful God for the many blessings in our lives. Again, thanks to each of you for your help and support in making our first few months go so smoothly!
This weeks word are the /oo/long and short vowel sounds from the Journey’s story, Coming Distractions: Questioning Movies. Our test will be on Friday, November 21.
