I am so excited to have moved from third grade to fourth grade with my students! It has been an amazing experience to return to a new school year with the wonderful students I had the privilege to teach last year. I am awed by the growth all you have made since last year at this time. Be proud of yourselves! As you already know, we are continuing to focus on our reading goals as we find and read new amazing literature. Already, all of you have found many exciting new books and shared them with others. Remember, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.” ~~ Dr. Seuss
I would also like to congratulate all of you on completing your 4th grade MEAP! It was a tense couple of weeks and you all handled it very well. You are Super Sailor MEAPsters!
Get ready for our Lansing trip this coming Thursday, October 25. We will be meeting at school in the classroom at 6:30AM. Bring a lunch with a drink and two snacks. Check the weather and dress appropriately as there will be some walking involved between the Capitol building and the History Museum. We are planning on returning to the school by 5:30PM. It will be a fun filled exciting day!
Please continue to practice multiplication and division facts through 12 for mastery! This is very important because knowing them will help you learn higher math. Practice working with fractions: comparing frations, (greater than, less than, or equal to), placing fractions on a number line, and adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominators. It would also be a good idea to review place value, (standard, short word, word, and expanded form), and adding and subtracting large numbers.
We will be learning more about the “shocking” subject of Electricity in the coming weeks. Get ready to be “electrified” at the Science Museum we will be visiting in Lansing on Thursday!
Go Tigers! Go Lions! Go Steelers!
