New Year and Week of Jan. 12-16

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.

1. aloud

2. bald

3. hawk

4. south

5. faucet

6. proud

7. claw

8. tower

9. stalk

10. couple

11. howl

12. false

13. dawn

14. allow

15. drown

16. pause

17. fault

18. cause

19. amount

20. cloudier

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.
