10/16 Box Tops are due
10/17 NILE Field Trip - Please have your permission slip signed along with $4 to help with the cost of the busses.
10/18-10/19 PIR Day - no school for students
10/26 Halloween Family Fun Night and Silent Basket Auction - Thank you for all of the wonderful donations you have all sent. I am thinking a cooler might be a great "basket" to hold all of the items. I would love for one to be donated for the auction.
10/29 ANTS Audubon Field Trip - all day
11/9 Veteran's Day Assembly
This week the students will focus on looking at animal folktales that teach a lesson. The students will analyze the 4 texts we read to understand how we can determine the theme, or central message, of a text with a personified animal.
A math growth mindset will be needed this week as students continue to multiply multi-digit numbers by a single digit. We learned last week how to multiply using the expanded form and partial products. This week we will focus our attention on using the standard algorithm, or regrouping method, to find the product of a given multiplication equation.
I am so very proud of all the students as they took time to produce a personal narrative that is full of detail and engages the reader. Students will begin their next personal narratives this week as we read Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge by Mem Fox. This book is about a boy who helps an elderly lady a nursing home regain her memory. Students will have the opportunity to send 3 items that symbolize, or represent, memories they have of someone or a special event. We will share this during our morning meetings next week. I will be passing the instructions for this activity out tomorrow in the Tuesday Folders.
The weekly code is for the students to show you have they can solve the problem 243 x 6 in two ways.
I hope you all have a great week. I look forward to the adventures that await our fourth-grade learning explorers.
