Chilly nights are here! Fall always reminds me of special times with family. It is a time when we can enjoy our friends and family. I hope you are taking time to count all of your blessings.
It is very important to be at school with so much learning going on each day. However, if your child is absent, contact me in the morning so I can gather up his/her work for pick up in the office by noon.
Please continue to practice the multiplication and division facts. Instant recall is our goal.
The fourth grade is getting very excited for Coffee House Poetry. Please be sure that your child is memorizing their mentor poem. Mark your calendars for Friday, December 4th at 9:15am. This is when our class will present their positively, passionate, pertinent, poignant poetry! An invitation went home in the Tuesday folder.
We are starting our new unit in reading next week which is learning about the elements of a biography. As students are reading their biography book, they are responsible for completing all the notes needed for their biography report so they will have many facts/ information to write their rough draft biography report next week. Also, students are required to have a minimum of three sources (a book, internet source, and another of their choosing). For the bibliography page, the following information must be noted for an internet source: author, title, web address, and the date accessed; for a book: author, title, publisher, and publication year. Remind your child that as they research, their notes are a living document and just because we have checked off an area doesn't mean that they can't add more details to their notes.
There will be no spelling, reading log or IXL this week. Students need to be sure to work on Night Writes which are due on November 30.

Math- 3 Digit by 1 Digit Multiplication (no IXL)
Reading and Writing- Biography study (no spelling or reading log)
