I look forward to seeing you at this event.  

It's a great way for us to start the year off on the right foot.


Does your child have headphones at school?


This week's spelling will be the continents and oceans of the world.  We will be focusing on this throughout the week and Friday's test will involve spelling the words AND placing them correctly on a map.  I will send home a black line master with your child on Monday so you can make copies or place a piece of paper over the top and have your child practice throughout the week.  Do you know where the Southern Ocean is located?

There's a map of the world in the DOCUMENT section as well, if you have printing capabilities.

Student Subscription

Storyworks is an instructional magazine that we order for our fourth graders.  

We ask that each family contributes $8 for this subscription. Thank you for your support! It would be

great if I could have the subscription paid for by the end of the month.



Accelerated Reader is a reading program that the fourth grade teachers use to monitor students' choice reading.  Each student chooses a book at their level (there are thousands of books in this program) and then when they are done reading, they take a computer test which has ten questions to check their comprehension.  When they pass this test, they are given a point value for the book.  

I ask that my students earn a minimum of 5 points a month.  Keep in mind that the point values are accessed according to length and difficulty of the book.  A "Treehouse" book, for example is a one point book, while a book like "Mouse and the Motorcycle" is 4 or 5 points.  The most important thing is that students are choosing books AT THEIR LEVEL.  Please monitor the books your children are reading at home to make sure they are the right level and that they are sticking with their books.  

If your child is reading a book that is NOT part of the Accelerated Reader Program, their book can still qualify, they just need to fill out the book report form that I have for them.  This system will be similar in fifth grade, so getting use to it now will be helpful next year too!
