Mr. Wallace’s Monthly Herald: November
With quarter two now underway, I am pleased by the continued progress that students are making. Thank you parents for your commitment to encouraging your child to give his or her best each day as we recently revisited our quarterly goals.
4th Grade Thanksgiving Showcase & Dessert Night Thursday, 11/19 @ 6pm
Reminder: “Family and Friends” Fundraiser envelopes Due Friday 11/20
Thanksgiving Break, 11/23 – 11/27
In our study of language arts, we have finished our personal narrative writing prompts and students are now building on their understanding of parts of speech and honing their ability to evaluate and summarize information. In math we are continuing to build math reasoning strategies and attend to precision within multi-step word problems using multiplication strategies. In science, students are exploring electricity, while in social studies, we are examining the regional cultures of early Native Americans that first settled our nation, followed by a look at world explorers.
Technology Update: Office 365 student accounts will soon be available so my students can work on digital projects both in class and at home. I’m excited about how students are using our class Edmodo page as a powerful learning tool. Be sure to check out your child’s Edmodo page where you can access a secure parent log-in code to see what we’re up to.
I wish you all a blessed Thanksgiving season!
