Dear 4B Parents,
I hope you all enjoyed Mother’s Day Weekend and Happy Mother’s Day to all of our wonderful 4th grade moms. If you did not receive your special card, please check your child’s filer!
This Thursday is the big bake sale!
All families are asked to send in some delicious treats to sell on Thursday. Students can bring their treats into the School Hall in the morning. There will be tables set up when you arrive. To start, please place the items on the back tables. We will be organizing and pricing the items during set-up. If you will be helping out meet us in the school hall betwen 9:45 and 10:00 for set up—or anytime between 9:45 and 1:00. Thank you to all in advance for both the baked goods and assistance! This is always such a fun event—
Flat Stanley Journals: The Journals are due next Tuesday, May 22nd. Be sure that the entries are checked over carefully and edited before they are turned in. The students should read each entry aloud–and do as much editing on their own as they can. If you need me to print any pictures, feel free to send them to me.
Spelling: There will not be a spelling test this week, but the words for a test that will take place next Thursday the 24th will come home with the students on Tuesday.
Social Studies: Look for corrected the corrected mountain and rivers test in your child’s filer. The next test will be onWashington cities. Study sheets for this test will come home next Monday the 21st. If students want to get a head start on practice they can start with the online practice site for the cities Yakima did not get included on the online test, but it will be on the study sheet. This test will take place Monday, June 4th.
Science: The students are doing so well installing the insulation in their solar ovens! I am so impressed with their creativity. We are going to take an extra day on Monday to finish up all insulation. Then we will be ready to test. Due to the bake sale on Thursday 4A will test their solar ovens next Monday. Keep praying for sun!
Math: The students will be taking the math portion of the MAP test on Tuesday and Wednesday this week. The students worked hard on the reading portion of their test last week. Our class work will continue to focus on fractions and decimals.
Mystery Book: All students should be reading their mystery books nightly. Books should be close to being completed if not completed already. They have the option of doing some extra credit work with their book if they choose. Everyone is required to do a “book talk” in front of the class as described on the directions sheet. I will be reviewing the expectations this week in class.
