Room 13 families,
It has been so nice meeting with so many of you to discuss your kiddo's progress in 4th grade. I look forward to meeting with all of the families I haven't met with yet this week!
There will be no spelling this week so that students can put the finishing touches on their writing assignments, and edit and revise as needed!
Information for the class book that we are making was sent home. Even if you do not want to purchase one, please send the form back in indicating that you do not want the book. If everyone returns the form (whether or not you are purchasing the book), we get one free class book!
Students set their own AR goals for third trimester based on previous goals and their growth as readers this year. I have never had so many students reach their goals as 2nd trimester. I was so impressed that so many students met or exceeded their goals. It is my goal to have EVERYONE reach their goal 3rd trimester! Students who reached their goal will get to choose a Scholastic book on me!
Reading groups are cancelled this Friday (March 14th) due to Pi Day. BUT, you are welcome to volunteer your time that morning anyways! This will be a fun day filled with mathematical activities and pie eating. Does it get any better? If you would like to purchase a pie for our class, please let me know! Also, for Pi day, we will be decorating t-shirts, so if your kiddo has a plain white tee that you don’t mind us writing on (it will not come home looking the same!), have him/her bring one in. You could also purchase one at Target for less than $5. If you are unable to purchase one, please let me know! I would also like each kiddo to bring in a circular item from home, this item may be as small as a button, but no bigger than the width of a school desk. We will be using these items on March 14th! In addition, Pi day will also be hat day; the hats can be crazy or just a baseball cap, whatever your kiddo prefers!
And finally, on March 31st, I am in need of volunteers for Gold Rush Day, which is an all-day event. It is best to have at least 6 parents that can commit to the full day. If you can't commit to the full day, you are still more than welcome to come for part of the day!
I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe spring break! I will miss my kiddos!
Thank you, as always,
March 14th: Pi Day/ Hat Day
March 3rd- 14th: Parent Conferences
March 17th- 28th: Spring Break
March 31st: Gold Rush Day
