4th - Gordon

Week of January 27-31-2020

Hi Folks!

This week's story is The King In the Kitchen

All spelling and grammar is for this story, beginning
on page 69.

4th grade math we will start book two of Go Math-
All fractions.


5th grade math students will be doing 6.9, 6.10,
eventually a test on Wednesday.​

The only struggle is multiplication facts. Please have your student continue to do extra math if you have computer access.

Young Writers stories are amazing!

The reason we are starting now is that our stories this year are based on The Houdini Box. The students are building their story right now in class, this is our current writing unit as well. I will keep you posted on how they are doing. I would love for my whole fourth grade class to go to Young Writers this year. Regardless of whether they go or not their book is our writing unit and a grade.

 

Science Innovation Day: This year Fourth and Fifth grade are having our Science Innovation day in May. The reason for this is that we are engaging in the scientific method. We will start our projects soon; I will let you know exactly how this will work. I am hoping most of your student’s work can happen in school… there may be some work that needs to happen at home...

Have a great weekend!

Hi wonderful parents,


I hope your all having a great weekend. So, last week your students really got “Back in the saddle” and, they are doing a great job.


Last week we finished up with Language arts NWEA. I am very impressed with how hard your children worked. A couple of changes I am able to make. Your students expressed that this test is long, and they get tired. So, with this test, we can break it into two parts, they may sit wherever they would like, and of course peppermints.


This Wednesday, we will start the NWEA math test. THe same ideas as above apply, we can split up the test, so know one gets tired.


NOW- I can not split up the CMAS, however it is a much shorter test in terms of questions asked. NWEA can be 38-43 questions long, that’s a lot. CMAS tend to have a two part math , and a two part english language. Each part is 10, maybe 13 questions. Now, having said that, every year things can change. 

I hope that is helpful.


Next week:

Reading street:The Great Kapok Tree- all Spelling and Grammar is on this story.

Math for 4th grade long division- this is the first year students have not cried about long division, I AM THRILLED for them:)


We will finish the Pillars of Islam- and, wow, wow, wow, your students are wise, and interested, and they are putting information in an putting it all in an historical perspective.



So- Holiday Party: I think and feel that all of you worked so hard on Ancient China Day, I am wondering how you feel about a low key Holiday party. We could make Snow Globes, I can get a template for this craft- then cookies, cocoa, and a movie the students choose.


We could do something for the local food bank...


If that sounds lame- I am open to however you all want to celebrate:)


Kindness: We are really focusing on kindness- at the end of the day, being kind is the most important thing.


Thanks so much for all you do - each and everyone of your amazing students are wonderful!
