   Subject Area
Math- Just to let remind you, each month of our new curriculum in math focuses on different concepts during our "Calendar Math Time".  During October, the students are learning about liquid measurement, fractions, different quadrilaterals, and are continuing to work on counting money and telling time correctly.  Many of our vocabulary words come from our calendar math program.  Study guides were sent home in Friday folders today.  Please take time to review the words.  Since our month is shorter due to Fall Break, there are not as many words to review.  :)

Science Fair
            Most students have picked what science fair project they want to do for the science fair this year. The science fair is going to be December 13th. If you want your child to do something other than what they picked, please let me know. The science fair is mandatory in the 4th grade. Thanks

Subject Area
Math- We have just completed Chapter 2 on Estimation and Number Theory.  We realize that finding factors and multiples are not the easiest activities, but the students have been working hard.  We are learning lots of new information and concepts daily!  Please continue to work on multiplication facts.  We will be ready to practice the 6's the week after Fall Break, and then we will continue to review the next set of facts each week after that.  Students should be able to recall facts quickly...almost automatically.  Feel free to use those websites like , make flash cards, practice orally, etc.  Any extra practice that you do should be documented.  If your child does any extra math practice for 20 minutes, write down the name of the website or description of what you did, and we will give some extra credit/bonus points. :)

Congratulations to the following students for making their AR goal Eli, Erika C., Chloe H, Stella, Kobe, Caleb, Alex, Abby, Carrigan, Jackson, Jesse, Simon, Jayden, Taylor, Olivia, Justin H, Erika, Dallas, and Trent.  Students have until next Friday to meet their goal.
