Tried to get them all but many cameras were off.
It was wonderful talking with everyone during our conferences. As we move into November Ms. Martin and I will continue to teach the standards while finding ways to enrich and build community.
Senora Blanca will lead a special Day of the Dead celebration during Spanish on Monday. Please join us for a virtual mass on Monday, All Souls Day Mass via Facebook at 9:15
Religion: Virtue: Gratitude. Beatitude: Blessed are those who mourn
Math: Solve multi-step word problems modeled with tape/box diagrams and assess the reasonableness of answers using rounding.
Reading: I introduced the students to EPIC free on-line books. All the books and educational videos are free from 8-4pm. Later this week students will begin a novel study on the book The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Students will read on their own or in small breakout groups. I encourage struggling readers to listen to an audible version.
ACHIEVE: November begins the Read to Succeed Contest. Students earn points for reading and answering questions correctly. Here’s to a little competitiveness.
Grammar: We are placing an emphasis on 4th grade grammar skills over the next two months.
Writing: Tying up some lose ends then Opinion Writing.
Virtual Recesses: Thanks to parents who have created and those who have signed up to lead our students for virtual recesses. Virtual recesses will be help on Wednesdays from 12-12:50. Enter via Mrs. Halley’s zoom link
