Hi Everyone!

Happy Tuesday night! I hope this newsletter finds you well! It looks like the weather may be turning colder this week--get ready for some winter weather! I wanted to let you know how well the students have been doing in fourth grade! I am really pleased with their progress and their attitudes! I could not have asked for a better group of students this year! In ELA right now we are working with nonfiction and main idea/details. Today we read about spiders. The students loved the photos included in this text. (I thought some of them they were scary!) During the next three days we will work with more nonfiction. In Math we are wrapping up Chapter 4, Division. Today I sent home the study guide which is due Monday. The test will be Tuesday. I plan to review tomorrow and teach the written answer section on Thursday and Friday. Students should be practicing their multiplication and division facts using the site I introduced this week. In Social Studies I am teaching the last three regions of PA this week and after Thanksgiving we will start the Northeast Region of the USA. I can't wait to chat with all of you during conferences! Check out the calendar section of the website to see an updated list of important dates. Thanks! Mrs. Schmoyer

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!
