Luck of the Irish
This coming week is going to be a busy one! I am so excited to announce that we have a guest speaker coming to the fourth grade on Tuesday. Dr. Willett is coming from the University of Akron to talk to our kids about natural disasters and survival skills. This ties into our current novel, Lost on a Mountain in Maine. However, it also helps prep the children for our next reading endeavor, the I Survived books. She is always engaging and brings good information to our students.
In addition to Dr. Willett, we will have a guidance lesson from Mrs. Kerrigan, our school guidance counselor. This supplements our weekly lessons from Second Step. Hopefully, you recognize the name from handouts that periodically come home. The program helps students build social-emotional skills, like nurturing positive relationships, managing emotions, and setting goals to be successful in school and life. We are currently enjoying the song "Stop! Name Your Feelings, Calm Down." I bet they can sing you a line or two!
We do have a math test tomorrow. We have been working hard on adding and subtracting fractions. Look for a purple study guide in your child's red take-home folder if you want to review that tonight! Tuesday, we will be starting Topic 10, which is a short and sweet unit on multiplying fractions. Miss Sokolowski and I are so impressed with everyone's ability to work through our strategies. I am confident we will do well tomorrow and with Topic 10.
One final note is that starting March 20th, you will get this update on Monday via physical paper. Please look for the handout in your child's take-home folder on March 20th. The content will be the same, just in a different format.
