Weekly Notes from 4th Grade
I am excited about having the Chromebooks in the classroom, and I think the students are too. We used them every day this week. We used them for English lessons in Nearpod and getting our Google Classrooms set up. I think we are on the roll.
We are progressing along in our subject areas.
Religion, we will have our Religion test on Friday. I plan on giving a Religion test most every week. For our first Religion test, I allowed the students to use their books. I wanted them to see what the Religion test looked like so they will be prepared for upcoming Religion tests.
Spelling, we will not have a test this Friday because of our short week. We will have a test next Tuesday.
Social Studies, we finished studying map skills. On Friday, we started Chapter 1, The Geography of Virginia. This chapter has three lessons. After each lesson, students will complete the lesson review that consists of five review questions that the students must TTQA.
Students need to log into Quizet.com and create a userid and password. Please make sure that you child knows his or her account, userid, and password, so when they come to class, they can log into Quizlet.com.

Reading, last week, we read a story and determined the problem, the actions, and then the solution. Students are doing nicely following this flow. This week, we will work on finding the main idea and the details to support it. Friday, September 21st, we will be celebrating our Summer Reading with Mrs. Main. Please make sure reading logs are turned in on Tuesday.
A few students did not complete homework or forgot to bring completed homework back to school. This past week was their grace week. Starting on Tuesday, if students do not bring homework back to school or homework is not complete, I will send an email to document missing work.
Green folders came home this past Friday. I stapled all of their work together. Please review your child’s work, sign it, and return it in the green folder. I will keep the papers for the nine weeks and then return them after report cards go out. Thanks! I know this is a little different from previous years.
