Parents,
Our class is having a blast preparing for the North Schuylkill Fun Run coming up soon! We've also begun to learn how to solve problems using character through Boosterthon's character theme, MindSpark Mystery Lab. While they're teaming up with the MindSpark Kids to solve mysteries, your students will learn five 21st-century character traits that will help strengthen themselves and our world. Make sure to ask your students what they've learned each day, and together you can watch the story unfold on funrun.com

Remember, we need your help connecting to sponsors who can make a pledge to help our school! Please make sure all pledges for the North Schuylkill Fun Run are entered on funrun.com. The more pledges we get, the more incentives our class earns on our Pledge-O-Meter.

Thank you for your generosity and support of our school. If you have any questions, please let me know.
Have a great day!

Happy New Year!! This week we will be working on finishing up 2 digit by 2 digit multiplication.  Yesterday we took an assessment on the standard algorithm and also how to apply multiplication skills when solving word problems.  We also tested on the "box method" or area models.  Now we will move on to division to finish the week.  We will start with basic division as a review and then move to long division.  Math antics is a great resource to use when you need to review concepts taught in class as a refresher!  

Next week our PTO will start Boosterthon!!  This fundraiser will help our school AND teach our students all about character education.   On Monday, students will view a digital pep rally to learn about this years theme!  You can sign your child up at funrun.com and get started with your pledges!

11/13 to 11/ 16
This week we will be working on multiplication algorithms and using the box method to simplify a multiplication problem.  Students will solve 2 digit by 2 digit multiplication problems.  We will also discuss what happens when we multiply a number with a zero in it and how place value effects a math problem.  PLEASE continue to study basic multiplication facts to increase fluency and accuracy.

I hope everyone is now back into the swing of things and is getting used to the 4th grade schedule!  In Math, homework will consist of a "half" sheet of practice problems.  Currently we are reviewing material covered in 3rd grade along with place value concepts.  It should not take them long to complete the sheet, 5 to 10 minutes at the most.  Also, please continue to practice multiplication facts daily.  Basic facts are the foundation to many of the concepts we will be learning this year in 4th grade.  Your child should be able to answer the facts correctly and fluently.  If you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

We have really been working hard to learn and follow all of the SPARTY rules.  So far, we have practiced staying Safe and Participating.  This week we will concentrate on Acting Respectfully.  Some examples of acting respectfully are: use appropriate voice level, follow directions and classroom rules, listen when others are speaking, and use kind words and actions.
