News And Notes for Miss d ’s th 4 grade

What We Are Up To:
Reading:
We will be continuing to work on determining importance this week. We are moving from using non-fiction text to using fiction text. We will also continue to work in our guided reading groups. On Wednesday we will be having a Mock MCAS in English Language Arts. This will give the students an opportunity to experience the MCAS at 4th grade.

January 5, 2014

Reminders :
Please make sure that:
• All Weekly progress reports and reading logs are returned signed. Please make sure that your child is dressed for the weather. We try to get out to recess as much as possible and want to make sure we are bundled up. Cut out Box Tops! We are beginning a school-wide competition to see which classroom can collect the most Box Tops. The winner gets to host Hoot the inflatable owl mascot of SSS for the month!

Writing:

We will be starting our narrative unit this week. In this unit we will focus on the main event and heart if our stories. The students will use their writing from trimester one to improve and add to their thinking.

Math:

This week we will be beginning unit 6. This unit explores the relationship between multiplication and division. We will also be learning long division during this unit. This week’s secret number is 42.
