Updates and Instructional Videos for 8/20


Hello parents of 4th Graders!

It’s been a great week!  The students are learning the routines of the classroom and are really starting to show what they know!  This week we did the following:

  • worked on place value and comparing numbers to the millions place
  • examined mentor sentences to imitate how great authors write
  • practiced finding the main idea of a passage
  • discussed the reasons of the French and Indian War
  • learned how to get used to Epic Books for independent reading
  • learned lots about Fire Safety before our visit to the Fire Safety Village next Friday

Please ask your child about his or her week and what we’ve learned.  I’m sure there’s lots in that smart brain!

Our class welcomed Mrs. Ana Bardales today!  Mrs. Ahern was the co-teacher in our classroom.  However, she has been placed to work with 5th grade this year as she is needed there.  Mrs. Bardales will be taking her place as a supply teacher until the position is filled permanently.  The students were notified on Thursday and have done well adjusting to Mrs. B.

Welcome to 4th Grade!

Welcome to 4th grade!  I’m sure many of you are excited and nervous at the same time.  Mrs. Ahern and l feel the same way.  Can you believe it? You’re a 4th grader (or your child is one)! We hope that you’ve had the MOST AMAZING summer!  We would love to hear about it as we get to know each other.  Fourthschool grade is a great year — there’s so much growth that you’ll make both academically and physically. I hope that this year you will continue to challenge yourself and help to build a community of leadership and learning in the process.  If you’d like to know a little more about us, visit the About Us page on this blog.
