Need your help with:

1.  One long sock to use as eraser for students' marker boards - tube socks are perfect

2.  Addition and Subtraction Facts review - students should know them by heart. (1-20)

3.  Encouraging students to read at home

Curriculum Notes:

1.  Math- We have begun our study of Geometry!  We are focusing on lots of vocabulary - points, lines, line segments, rays, angles, polygons, quadrangles, and parallel lines.  We are drawing and constructing using a compass and a straightedge.

2.  Reading - Our focus is monitoring Comprehension, building reading stamina and several comprehension skills.  We are also working on choosing a "just right book" for independent reading.

3.  Writing - We are establishing our Writer's Notebook and beginning to learn to enjoy writing by using personal experiences. 

4.  Social Studies - In Unit One, we are focusing on landforms, latitude and longitude, and geography terms.  Then we will touch on an overview of the U.S. - landscape, climate, and natural resources.  

It has been a delightful start to the year.  Thanks for all you do at home to inspire these wonderful fourth graders!

I hope to see you all at conferences in October!!!

Thank you!
