Final Post

Well, we did it!! We completed a successful 4th grade year!  I just wanted to take a minute to thank you all for making me feel so special these last few weeks of school.  I had a list of thank you cards to write and well, it didn't happen before the last day.  :-)  I am however, very thankful and appreciative.  I hope everyone has a splendid summer.  Please keep in touch!  Also, don't forget to have your kiddos work on their math facts here and there this summer.  When they are bored tell them to get on www.multiplication.com or play a math fact game on their IPAD or phone. :-)  Please keep in touch! :-)

*Field day is this Friday, May 18th.  Please have your child wear their class t-shirt, shorts and tennis shoes.  Sunscreen needs to be applied before your child leaves for school.  Students can also wear sunglasses and a hat if they like.  Your child can bring a change of clothes, towel and flip flops if they want to change into before they leave.  I hear there are some water events, please have them bring a plastic bag for their wet clothes. :-)  Parents are welcome to come, make sure you get your badge pre-printed to make things easier that day. K-2 is 9:00-11:00 and 3rd/4th is 1:00-3:00.
 
* Next Thursday, May 24th is our Market Day.  I will be checking in with students this week to make sure they know what they are doing.  Just a reminder, each students needs to bring a minimum of 10 products to sell.  Each store(group) needs a tri-fold with their store name and products listed with prices.  Students can work on this at school with their partner(group) before announcements if needed.  Just a reminder, because of limited space and it being part of our regular learning day parents are not allowed to attend.  I will take plenty of pictures, I promise. :-)
 
*Next Friday, May 25th is our 4th grade Step up Party!! I can't wait, it sounds like it is going to be so much FUN!!!  Students will again need to wear tennis shoes, class t-shirt and shorts!   I would send a change of clothes, towel and flip flops for students to change into.  Also, please apply sunscreen before they leave the house.  The party is from 9-2.  Parents who have volunteered to help will be able to attend.  Email me if you have any questions, I will be taking lots of pictures and again promise to share if you can't volunteer.  
 
In Math this week we will be learning some 5th grade concepts!! The kids always enjoy getting a jump start to NIS!  In Science this week we will be continuing to discuss life cycles and ecosystems!  We will have an open notes test over this unit next week along with our Science Benchmark.  I will send home a review sheet for the Science benchmark this week.  No more math homework!! woohoo!! :-) 12 1/2 days ya'll.. we are almost there!  I will send lots of Edlios these last couple weeks..

Market Day

Dear Parents,

Here is some additional information about Market Day on May 24th.

1. This is not a grade but does tie in with our financial literacy TEKS and gives students a better understanding of supply and demand.
 
2.Students in the same shop/group DO NOT have to sell the same thing. Having a theme for the shop would be nice such as: sports or bath items, but it also works well with a different types of products being sold.

3. Students can work on their tri-fold advertisement boards at school before announcements, or at home with their groups, but no actual class time will be dedicated to working on the projects.   

4. The teacher will be checking in with groups here and there to make sure the store is coming along and help with pricing as needed.  

5. The whole 4th grade will be participating in the flea market in the cafeteria.  Each class will have a certain area in the cafeteria to set up their shops.  Boys and girls will shop at each shop so having products to suit all students might be a good plan, but is not mandatory.


If you have any additional questions please let me know.

*Market Day- May 24th (each student needs to come prepared with 10-15 items minimum and the group needs to have a tri-fold prepared)  Your child should have a group and items already planned.  I checked in with each group on Friday.  Students are allowed to bring their materials to school including the tri-fold to work on with their group before the bell rings at 8:40.  Because of limited space and it being part of our regular learning day parents are not allowed to attend.  I will take plenty of pictures, I promise. :-)

This week in math we are wrapping up our financial literacy unit.  We are testing over this unit tomorrow, May 1st.  Students can prepare by looking over their math journal and by making sure they understand their homework sent home last Friday.  We answered questions in class today.  Math homework is due tomorrow, May 1st.  We will go over it and answer any questions before the test.  Tomorrow I will send home a new homework page that will be due Friday, May 4th.  The rest of the week we will begin our STAAR review and prep!  Next week we will kick off "Escape from Emoji Island" Staar review rotations. Feel free to send in any Emoji themed goodies, the kids would love it!! 
 
This week in Science we are beginning our study of plant and animal life cycles.  We will discuss the difference between complete and incomplete metamorphosis.  I am still in need of a milk weed plant (with a caterpillar egg on the leaf please) and the kids really want to have a venus fly trap in the classroom.. I told them I would try again to get a donation. :-)  
 
It is a busy last month of school- I will send extra Edlios to keep us all straight.
