Week of 4/27/15

Homework this week will have us continuing to practice our work with fractions. Your kiddo will work on comparing fractions and finding equivalent fractions. Look back to my "Fraction Fun" post from November and my "Comparing Fractions" post from December if you need some reminders of what to do to solve these problems.

Track meet is rescheduled for Thursday this week (4/30/15). Please be sure that your kiddo wears their track meet shirt, tennis shoes, has a lunch, and brings a water bottle. Hopefully we will have a rain free day on Thursday!

Please be sure to remind your kiddo that they still have lots of learning to do this year. Some kiddos were shocked to learn that we still have multiple unit tests to take. :) On Monday (5/4/15), your kiddos will take an end of year science test. The data from this test will be given to Harrison to use in many different ways. I know we are doing MANY fun activities that get us off our routine, but it is important that your kiddo does their best throughout the rest of the year.

As always, thank you so much for your support and let me know if you have any questions.

Week of 4/20/15 - 4/24/15

This week is going to be CRAZY!!!!!

Monday we are doing our final review for the STAAR test. We will be playing "Who Wants to be a Millionaire and will have a campus pep rally to show our support to our kiddos.. :) WE ARE READY!!!

Tuesday will be the Math STAAR and Wednesday will be the Reading STAAR. Please remember to send a sack lunch with your kiddo if you did not send in the form to order one from the cafeteria. Kiddos can bring a snack and a water bottle if they want. They will need books to read when they are finished with the test, but they do NOT need to bring their backpack those two days (if they don't want to). Please be sure they get plenty of sleep AND KNOW THAT WE ALL BELIEVE IN THEM!

Thursday we are planning a fun celebration stations day to reward everyone for all their hard work thus far.

Friday is 4th Grade Track Meet. Please be sure to send a sack lunch with your kiddo (unless you ordered one from the cafeteria) and have your kiddo dress in tennis shoes and comfy pants/shorts. A matching shirt will be provided for them that morning.

Let me know if you have any questions. Have a great weekend!

Camp Calculate in Action!

We are coming into our second week of Camp Calculate and your kiddos are doing great! I am enjoying watching them work through problems and share the strategies that they used to get them! We will continue Camp Calculate this week to help us be prepared for the Math STAAR next week. Thank you to all that contributed "goodies" for camp. Those are the kids favorite stations! :)
