*Parents of 4th grade girls: There will be a purple flyer coming home tomorrow about puberty and growth and development.  The girls will more than likely be coming home asking tons of questions about this letter.  I just wanted to give you a heads up. :-) It's that time... trust me I am not ready either.  

In math this week, we will be introducing measurement.  We will be starting with customary measurement and relative size.  We have started estimating about how big something is in real life.  This is something you could do in the car on the way home, while you're at dinner, or any where.  We will start converting customary measurement later in the week.  Homework came home on Friday (Math book pgs. 627-628, 633-634, and 639-640 (They are to do odd #'s only))  it will be due this Friday.  

In science, we will be continuing the water cycle and will start our weather unit.  Please have your child watch the weather forecast either at night or in the morning.  We will be having discussions in class about weather symbols, High and Low pressure, and fronts in class.  Discussions at home are always encouraged as well. :) 

I hope you have a great week!
