Around the corner
I am not sure if you spotted any this weekend, but I saw the first flurries outside my house. I know I am a minority, but I was excited. I love winter. Well, I love the start of all the seasons. But I am that Ohioan that appreciates the cold, loves the white landscapes, and enjoys playing in the frozen precipitation. So that being said, I am glad that winter is around the corner! Your children, however, need to be ready for it! Feel free to send a spare pair of boots for your child to keep in their locker. If not, they should wear them on wet, snowy days. We will leave wet boots in the hall and wear our warm shoes in the classroom.
In language arts this week, we will wrap up our novel study for Sign of the Beaver. This will include the movie on Wednesday. As a result, your child is welcome to bring a small stuffed animal or pillow to snuggle with during the film. It is only an hour and a half so they won't need extra snacks. We will have our normal morning, healthy snack in the middle of it.
The children did well on the long division quiz last Friday. Thank you! We could tell how many of them worked with you at home, and your time and patience with them were invaluable. We are moving on to factors, multiples, and prime and composite numbers next. Remember to keep practicing multiplication facts at home. Whether it is flash cards or just random facts once in a while, it helps!
We are studying the Revolutionary War in social studies. The kids had a great time making their own tea crates last week. This week we will study events like the Intolerable Acts and Stamp Act. And in science, we are starting our unit on rocks and minerals. The children always like this unit!
I also wanted to tell you what a fantastic job your children did on Tuesday. They were all excellent listeners, asked good questions afterward, and were truly Bath Team Heroes. I was so proud of our administration and your fourth graders.
