Hi Everyone!

Happy Friday! We had a fantastic week! We worked with subjects and predicates, synonyms, idioms, plot elements and realistic fiction this week in Wonders. We did start reading groups this week but I did not send home the small books yet. I meet with the reading groups Monday-Thursday and we got super busy this week with our new Reader's Theaters and some exciting texts. Next week in Wonders we will examine natural disasters through expository text. We will also work on multiple-meaning words and clauses. We had a lot of fun in Math this week--the students seem to love the way my math class is structured and that makes me so happy! On Monday we will look at the constructed response questions for this chapter and then we will review on Tuesday. The first math test of the year will be on Wednesday. Students should definitely make sure they complete the study guide which is due Tuesday. This is great practice for the test! We read more of Tales of the Towpath this week. The students loved some of the extra stories we shared and of course, they loved looking at treasures from the trunk. Please ask them to tell you about the stone we examined on Thursday! In Social Studies we started talking about the PA Projects. We will pick our topic choices on Monday. Friday next week will be so exciting! We are doing a huge Towpath activity in the morning with the whole fourth grade, meeting with our second grade buddies and doing another STEM activity! I can't wait! Please make sure to sign and empty the Friday Folder and sign and return the reading log. We are excited to hit 1,000 stickers! Check out the calendar section of the website to see an updated list of important dates. Also, I have listed new wishlist items that we would love to use this week. Thanks! Have a great weekend!

Each Friday, I plan to post the daily homework for the coming week in this space. Please check it and contact me with any questions. I will provide a binder for each student on the first day of school. Please check out my supply page for some items I would like you to bring with you on that first day. Thank you again, in advance, for your support. The key to a successful school year is a true partnership between the teacher and the parents!
