We have had another delightful week of learning. We finished reading Wonder, and I am so impressed with the caring hearts the children have. Meaningful discussions and examples of reaching out to others have solidified the purpose of this novel. Oh how different our world would be if we all were kinder than necessary. I hope you have a chance to read this book.
Thank you to Ms. Farhataziz, Ms. Yoes, Ms. Jafri, Ms. Dobies, Ms. Mayer, and Ms. Master for donating Shrinky Dink paper for our classroom. I appreciate you!
In a few days, fourth grade will begin our service project -- the Denim Drive. The students are eager to encourage and help others in need. Creative juices have generated flyers, skits, Power Points, posters, and many more advertisement opportunities in order to get the word out to other Canyon Creek students to donate their denim! The collection begins October 1st.
IMPORTANT DATE CHANGES
Due to bus black-out dates beyond our control, we have had to make some date changes for some important 4th grade events during the spring semester. Please make changes to your calendars:
*April 11, 2019 - Field trip to the Meadows Center
*May 1, 2019 - Field trip to the Bob Bullock Museum (chaperones needed)
*May 22, 2019 - Texas Day
Please note the change of date for Texas Day which is no longer on May 2nd. We will have a huge celebration during Texas Day on May 22nd, and we have had to change the pancake breakfast that was scheduled for May 23rd to a doughnut breakfast and celebration.
Practice Makes Permanent
Multiplication facts 0-10 should be mastered. We will begin multiplication of 1-digit by 4-digit numbers next week. Please have your child practice nightly until instant recall is obtained. Instant recall of these facts is a game changer in 4th grade math. It can make all the difference in math confidence!
