Welcome to Fourth Grade!

This week finds us wrapping up our ELA MCAS testing on Tuesday.  I was exceedingly proud of how hard they all worked last week!  I saw everyone taking their time, working diligently and implementing the strategies we have  been working on all year — writing strong topic sentences, making and using graphic organizers, re-reading and checking over our work.  No one rushed thorough it and persevered through about 2.5 hours of testing.  I anticipate Tuesday to go just as well!

We are working on several things in math, converting improper fractions to mixed numbers, adding and subtracting mixed numbers, measuring and drawing angles.

Did they tell you about our latest story we are working on — about losing their homework.  This is so fun and writes so quickly.  They can be super crazy and creative– ask them to share their progress with you at home (it is in their Google Drive).

Friday we will watch the movie The Series of Unfortunate Events and will participate in some math games with Mrs. Walsh-Fortin since we had the highest number of students attend the Family Math Night!!

Homework this week is two IXLs...N2 and G2  The students showed work to 100 points or for 20 minutes on each, whichever comes first.

Have a wonderful week and a fantastic week off of school!
