As you know, we are off and running! What a great start this has been to a new year. I am so impressed with my class, and how well they have adapted to fourth grade so far! This is going to be a wonderful year full of growth for our children. I’m so grateful to be a part of your child’s life—they make me smile!
To keep up to date on homework assignments, spelling words, tests, and special events, please visit our school website, www.tvcs.org, click on the button for Elementary, then on teacher connection. You’ll see my name listed, and with one quick click, you’ll stay informed.
We have been working very hard in math to reinforce skills learned in 3rd grade, and extending those skills. We have been working on writing numbers into the hundred millions three different ways: standard form (using digits), expanded form (expanding the place values using zeros), and word form (using words to describe the number). Currently, we are studying multiplying by 1-digit numbers and it seems as though our students are a bit rusty on their multiplication facts. Please have your child practice counting by 3’s, 6’s, 7’s, 8’s, and 9’s, and also practice those multiplication facts daily. By helping your child with their multiplication facts it will help them feel much more confident, and will make division much easier for them!
Science & Social Studies
*We have been studying changes to the Earth’s surface through weathering and erosion.
*We will soon start our exploration of Florida history learning about Florida’s Geography. We will be taking a field trip to St. Augustine this fall. It is a fantastic trip, and the students will be amazed by how much they learn.
Wish List/Parent Involvement
