What about the STARS on the reading calendar?  It is optional to read on the stars, but students that do read on all stars during the month, (with a parent signature) will receive a small treat at the end of the month.

RRJ:Reading Response Journal:  Check for what day your RRJ is due.  It is on the right side of this page.

 Students will be writing their daily math assignments in their binders during math class each day, and I will be signing off to ensure that assignments are written. 

   Please check your student's binders for their assignments. Thank you!

Spelling/Words Their Way:
  Instead of spelling we will be starting a new "Words Their Way" program.  Here is a note from Mrs. Gamache.

This fourth graders Words Their Way – our district word study program- that will continue through middle school.  This word study program is not like traditional spelling as it is personalized to your own child’s spelling and vocabulary strengths.  This program is designed to be imbedded into our reading and writing workshop and assessed through their progress with writing and reading – not assessed with a traditional spelling test. If you have any questions about Words Their Way, please contact our building reading specialist, Linnea Gamache at LGamache@sowashco.org or 425-5893.

(with Mrs. Porter)  

    SOCIAL STUDIES-We are studying the regions of the United States!
