Welcome to 4th Grade
Teacher: Mrs. Amy Kundrat (email@example.com)
December 11-15 and 18-22
The next two weeks before Christmas break are going to be very busy in the Imagineering Workshop so here is what we will be doing.
In math, the students will have a quiz on multiplication of two digit and three digit numbers by one digit on Wednesday, December 13. It is important that they master this skill since we will be moving into two digit numbers multiplied by two digit numbers when we come back in January. The students have been doing a great job working on this skill each and every day.
In spelling, the students will have their last spelling test of 2017 this Friday, December 15. Next week we will do some spelling activities using Christmas words, but there will not be a test next Friday. Here are this week’s words:
Thanksgiving, among, think, blank, graph, young, wheel, nephew, belong, whiskers, whispers, elephant, white, shrink, wharf, trunk, strong, blink, chunk, skunk, strengthen, bankrupt, phantom, whimsical, whatever
In language arts, we will be reading Christmas themed selections and doing various Christmas grammar activities as well.
In science, we will begin our study of animals preparing for our winter unit.
In religion, we will continue to discuss the liturgical seasons of advent and Christmas. Also, we will discuss the sacrament of reconciliation. On Friday, December 15, the students will have the opportunity to receive the sacrament of reconciliation.
A few other upcoming events:
Tuesday, December 19- Christmas Musical at 6:00pm- Please refer to the notice that came home and is in the SBS Express for more information.
Thursday, December 21- Fourth and fifth grade Christmas party. Please return the permission slip ASAP.
I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas!
We have been very busy in fourth grade learning about Advent and Christmas.
Just a reminder that all Scholastic book orders are due by Friday, December 8. This is a great way to buy books and help the class earn free books too!
In language arts, the students are putting some finishing touches on their “Rudolph in the Dark” stories. This week we are also transitioning to discussing prepositions and practicing identifying prepositions, prepositional phrases.
There will be a spelling test on Friday, December 8.
morning, forest, garbage, form, alarm, corner, story, argue, backyard, start, partner, storm, Florida, apartment, sport, force, forward, sharp, garden, Arkansas, departure, margarine, informative, snorkel, carnation
In math, the students have been very busy learning multiplication of two and three digit numbers by one digit. They are truly being mathematicians! Also, just a reminder that they are to complete 50 minutes each week of MobyMax math. MAKE SURE THAT THE STUDENT LOGS OUT AFTER EACH SESSION TO MAKE SURE THEIR TIME IS ACCURATELY RECORDED.
In reading, the fourth and fifth grade classes are reading “The White House Christmas Mystery”. Each day we are unsure of what to expect next!
In religion, the students are learning about the liturgical season of Advent and how we can prepare our hearts and minds for Christmas. Each Monday during Advent we gather as a school community to light our Advent wreath. Also, this Friday, December 8, is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception so we will gather as a school community for Mass at 1:15 pm on this Holy Day of Obligation. We will also read and discuss the Gospel for this Sunday.
Just a reminder that we are working on filling our box for the Christmas Food Drive. Please consider making a donation of microwaveable meals (NOT REFRIDGERATED). Any and all donations are greatly appreciated.
Have a wonderful week!
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…
Knights of Columbus and This Week
We had a wonderful day at the Knights of Columbus Museum yesterday. The students enjoyed everything from creating an ornament and touring the creches from around the world to decorating our Christmas tree using all the ornaments and decorations that we made as a class.
Here are just a few reminders:
We are currently running our schoolwide food drive. The fourth graders are bringing in microwaveable meals that do not require refrigeration.
There is NO spelling test this Friday.
MobyMax is required for a minimum of 50 minutes for math each week.
Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week!
