Math: Your child took their Topic 8 math assessment over equivalent fractions and comparing fractions. I have updated all of their math skills in Mastery Connect if you want to go over and check that out. Math assessments will be in their take home folders tomorrow so make sure you take look :) We start adding and subtracting fractions this week!
Writing: The kids have been working hard on researching and writing about a famous Missourian of their choice. We will start publishing our writing pieces tomorrow and then will start working on our Flat Stanley's this week. I have put a few examples of this project below. If your child wants to bring in any materials for this they are more than welcome! They can bring in their materials at any time, but we will probably really start on Wednesday/Thursday. I do not have a ton of stuff for each kid, so if you have any extra supplies laying around I would be more than happy to take it off your hands :)
Other important INFO...
- 4th grade leadership interviews are tomorrow! I had planned on talking with the kids today about this, but did not get the chance. We were going to discuss how we should dress professionally/nicely for our interviews and practice speaking clearly. If you could have this discussion with them before tomorrow that would be great!
- Our Valentine's Party is February 14th at 2:30. I sent a list home with names for Valentines cards. Your child may choose to make a box or not. They could always bring in a bag or decorate a bag at school.
- The annual Change a Life Coin Drive begins tomorrow!
