Welcome to 4th Grade

2018-2019
 
Dear 4th Grade Families,
 
Welcome to a fun and exciting year of learning. My name is Mrs. Lewis and I am excited to be your child's teacher this year.
Fourth grade is an exciting journey. This year students will become more independent while discovering their personal responsibilities for learning. Fourth grade students will be switching classes for major academic subject areas. I will be teaching Math and Science to all fourth grade students. Miss Minichini, my fellow fourth grade teacher, will be teaching Language Arts: Reading & Writing. All students have Social Studies class with their homeroom teacher.  Please see the link below for the Student Schedule for 4-L.
 
Parent communication and partnership is very important to me and vital to your child’s success. Please take some time to review all of the informational material that is being sent home with your child. Feel free to request an in-person or phone conference at any time throughout the year. You can reach me by sending a note in with your child, email, or calling the School 3 main office.
I look forward to working together to make this year great!

Sincerely,
Mrs Lewis

PBSIS Gingerbread Activity

PBSIS Gingerbread Activity

We are planning a special activity as a reward for our Positive Behavior Support In Schools (PBSIS) program.  We are going to build gingerbread houses!  In order for this project to be successful we are asking for families to donate items from the following list:

  • Graham Crackers (plain or original)
  • white vanilla icing
  • -green vanilla icing
  • holiday sprinkles
  • small candies to decorate (mini M&Ms, mini candy canes, gumdrops, peppermints)
  • plastic knives

 

Please send your items in by Wednesday, December 12, 2018.

 

Thank you!

Mrs. Lewis and Miss Minichini

 

*Please note that this special activity is a reward for students who have exhibited exceptional behavior. The behavior plan for this activity will continue to be in place up until the day we make the gingerbread houses.  Behavior misconduct is recorded through a strike system.  Students with 3 or more strikes will “strike out” of the activity.

Multiplication Quizzes and Homework- 2 Important Notes

1. Classwork & Homework
Today we started Topic 3 in our Math books. I strongly encourage the students to use a multiplication chart on their homework and classwork if they are unsure of an answer to a basic fact.  A multiplication chart can be found on page 7 of the homework planner.  I also posted a printable one on this webpage.  Students should still practice their basic multiplication facts regularly so that they will no longer need to use the chart.
 
2. Friday Multiplication Quizzes
Starting Friday, October 26, 2018, Basic Multiplication Quizzes will be re-takes only (for the remainder of first marking period).  Please go onto Oncourse and see which quizzes you would like to retake and study for them.  You will have an opportunity to retake a basic facts quiz every Friday.
During the second marking period, quizzes will resume with mixed fact families.  It is very important that all students continue practicing multiplication facts to be prepared for these quizzes. 

Extra Supplies Needed

Dear Parents,

Please consider donating one or more of the following items to our classroom:

  • a box of tissues
  • band-aids
  • napkins
  • disinfectant wipes
  • hand sanitizer

 

Thank you!
