Week November 12

Greetings 4A. A big thank you to all veterans who have served our country! I hope you all enjoyed the long weekend. Friday’s field day was a fun event, and hopefully you got a chance to see some of the pictures on the school’s Facebook page.

Canned Food Drive: Our Canned Food Drive has begun! The fourth grade has a goal of collecting 470 cans/dollars, which is reflective of the geographic area  in square miles of South Africa (divided by one thousand). Thank you to those of you who have started dropping off food.

Math: This week in math we continue our work on measurement and classifying shapes. We will specifically be working on solving problems involving perimeter.

Reading: We should be done with our novel study of Strider by the end of the week. I am also introducing a Readers’ Theatre play called The Thanksgiving Table this week. We will be splitting into small groups and working on individual reading parts. Students will have the opportunity to perform their play for lower school classrooms during the week of Thanksgiving.

Writing: Some students are still finishing up on their personal narratives. We will also be working on writing a story extension to our play, The Thanksgiving Table. This should take us through Thanksgiving.

Social Studies: We will continue our study of the Southwest region this week. Additionally, I will be introducing the requirements of the Arizona State Project. Information will be sent home in the Eagle Express this week, and the project will be due on Friday December 6th.

Have a fantastic week!
