4th Quarter Fiction/Nonfiction Books: Due: May 10th Students are required to read and reflect on at least 5 books each quarter (2 Fiction books and 3 Non-fiction books). Each book must be on the student's reading level or at a grade 4 reading level. Students can pass an AR Quiz (80% or higher). Each test is worth 10 pts and will be taken as a grade.(50 points total) Your child will also be given the option to reflect on their book instead of using AR. Each reflection activity is worth 10 pts with a total of 50 points per quarter. Your child will be given a 4th Quarter Reading Log  to keep in their Red Take Home Folder.  Please monitor your child's independent reading by visiting our AR program online from home and checking the reading log.

Math : Math End of the Year Review Lessons

Pease remember...  The front of our student practice page will be used for guided/extra practice with teacher.  The back page will be used for a grade.  (6/6=100%, 5/6 = 83%, 4/6=69%, 3/6=50%)  Students need to do their best each day to keep up their grade!
 Please be sure your child shows their work on lesson pages and refers to their BIG Math Book for help.  No work shown results in no credit and a note in the planner, so this is very important.  Students can also use their Math Notebook to help them with their homework. This notebook will include sample problems from the lessonl.   If you ever have a question about math, please email me. 

 Please continue to practice multiplication and division fast facts at home.   Students will struggle if they do not master their fast facts. Their assignments will take longer to complete, and their grade will be affected. 

Science: We are using the MySci Unit Kit for Energy Transfer - We will work in our Science Journal
Soc Studies: Missouri Notebooks 
Fireman Ron's final visit is 5/10 for Jr Fire Academy 

Please review papers coming home in the daily folder with your child and talk to them about their progress. Be sure your child completes any unfinished work and returns to school the next day, this is very important to our class routine!  We do not want to spend too much time trying to locate work or making extra copies. No name papers will have to be redone or a zero will be entered as the grade.
