Parents,

Happy Monday!  Students are not studying for their weekly timed math facts test. Therefore, students are required to write times tables 3 times each (if they passed last weeks test) 5 times if they failed  every night this week. Please make certain your child has their own pair of scissors and ruler. Please sign and return all field trip forms as soon as possible. If you would like to chaperone please contact me via email mrtoney@cps.edu . After school programs start this week.

Weekly Objectives

Math- This week in Math students will continue working on various strategies for solving multiplication facts. Please  continue to practice multiplication facts with your children. All Students this week are required to write their times tables fact 3 times each nightly.  Those facts are due the very next day, not Friday (example: 3X0=0 to 3X12=36). Students will be notified on Monday which facts they need to work on.If you need clarity please send me an email.

Literacy- This week in Language Arts we will be reading realistic fiction. This week for homework, read “Once Upon A Cool Motorcycle Dude””. Students will be continue reading their novels for small group. This week students will recognize compare and contrast relationships in text. Our Classroom Novel is “Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing” by Judy Blume. Please dialogue with your fourth grader about  what they are reading. Ask them about the character traits of the main characters (protagonists) in the story. What evidence in the text supports why they feel a character has that trait?

Social Studies: While reading informational text, students will identify main idea and supporting details as well as using context clues to identify any unfamiliar words.
Writing– This week in Writer’s Workshop we continue working on our personal narrative stories.

Science- Students will continue studying the process of proposing and testing hypothesis (Scientific Method).  Students will research possible Science Project ideas for the classroom science fair. We will begin discussing experiments that are of interest to them in preparation for our classroom science fair in December. Here are some websites you can visit with your 4th grader for science project ideas.
