Welcome Wednesday!!! Week of January 8 – 12, 2018

Dear Parents and Students,

This is my first message to you since the end of Winter Break because today was actually my first day to return. I was taken very ill a few days before Christmas and had to spend a short time in the hospital, but I am doing much better now and I am so happy to be back. I have received many Emails and questions from parents and i was able to address a few things while I was gone, but I am hoping to now catch up and get everything addressed within the next few days. Please bear with ma as I am still going to be a bit slow and tired while my strength returns.

I was met by a very happy group of children this morning and we have a a whirlwind of a day! We went back a couple of lessons in Math and began on Eureka Math Lesson 19 today. We are still reviewing and refreshing our long division and will continue to work on it until the students are comfortable. Tomorrow we will do Lesson 20.

We are on Unit 12 in Spelling. The words have been added to the Word Lists on the Spelling page of the Blog. You can also find them in your child’s docket this week, or in their L.A. notebook where they should have written the words. Please study with them at home so they can get 100% on their Spelling test on Friday.

We began reading the book, Percy Jackson and the Lightening Thief right before we went on Winter Break. It is a Read Aloud we will be studying along with our Greek Myth’s Unit for Reading/Writing/History. This is one of my very favorite units of the year and I like to spend a bit of time on it. I am excited to continue with the reading of this book and all that we do along with it today!

We will again be switching for the next round of Science Rotations soon. My class will rotate to Miss Cerny’s classroom for Weather. The Weather Unit is a big unit with a lot of very helpful information the students will use forever. They will learn to predict the weather, learns all about types of clouds and fronts, and the many, many tools that Meteorologists use. They will even get to make and try a few. I know they will enjoy this unit!

I am a little bit behind in updating grades into Aspire. I will work on it a bit throughout the rest of the week and then I will hit it hard over the weekend so you will see completely updated grades by Monday. If you have any questions before then i will do my best to answer them. Please feel free to contact me through Email at any time.

Thank you for all of your support. I appreciate all you do to support your children and I especially appreciate everything you do for me.

Sincerely,

Wednesday Words…Week of December 11 – 15, 2017

Dear Parents and Students,
We are having an amazing and very busy week We are getting all prepared for our Winter Break coming up next week by getting all of our work completed. We began the week by sending home the permission slips for our Big Holiday Party coming up one week from today, Wednesday, December 20, 2017. If you have not seen that permission slip yet, please open the attachment below. This is an important permission slip because we will be having yummy food at our party and I would hate for anyone to miss out on that. If I do not have a signed permission slip turned in for each child I will have to find an alternative activity for the children without permission while we eat and watch any movie shorts we may get to. Again, the permission slip is attached below.
I have had a few questions from students as far as the White Elephant party gift is concerned… Please do not let this cause any undue stress. Allow me to me shed some light on this funny party game.

***This is a variation on the traditional game of Secret Santa. The game gets its name from the white elephants that were supposedly gifted out of vengeance by the King of Siam to anyone who tried to cross him! Legend has it that these beasts, although beautiful, were not very useful. And, hence, the White Elephant gift exchange we know and love today… where the practicality of the gifts is secondary to the silliness. If you aren’t familiar with how to play White Elephant, imagine a run-of-the-mill gift exchange, except you’re allowed to steal the Batman socks that “Carl” just unwrapped if you happen to fancy them more than choosing another unknown gift from the pile in the center of the room. Sounds a little wild, right? It’s like being the Grinch and Cindy-Lou-Who at the same time! It’s the best of both worlds—the spirit of giving meets the spirit of taking! It’s naughty and nice! And that’s precisely why it is oh, so much fun! Don’t worry about running out and buying something for this game. Just look around your house for something that may not be useful to you anymore, but could possibly be a favorite to someone new. Wrap it up and VIOLA!!! There you have it! I am hoping the class will really get into the spirit of fun and steal away the gifts. It is so much more exciting this way!

Gifts I have received in the past: A can of soup, batteries, a bar of soap, a tiny plastic tiara, an old matchbox car, a dishtowel from the 1070’s (that I still use and love!), a tube of toothpaste, and my personal favorite, superman socks with capes attached! I can’t wait for this party!!!

Another subject I would like to speak to everyone about is Math. As a majority the class has been having a very hard time understanding our Math lessons using Zearn.com for Homework. Many students are not completing the work, but what concerns me even more is that many students are not understanding the online lessons even after being taught a mini-lesson and being guided through the online lessons by me.
Our Mid-Module test did not go well. Most students had to re-take the test after I re-taught the lessons and some students are not finished with re-taking the test yet. If you see an extremely low score in Aspire on the Math Mid-Module Test called M3, your student is probably still taking the re-take. However, I believe it would be very beneficial for the students to begin using multiplication flash cards or to do a multiplication timed test at home as a form of studying. By this point in the year students in 4th grade should be able to answer all multiplication facts from memory up through 12X12 without hesitation. Without this basic foundation, as the year continues and as they move along into Fifth Grade the Math lessons will become harder and much more difficult for them to complete.
Attached below you will find a copy of many multiplication timed tests for practice at home. Please print what you need. You will also find a set of printable Multiplication Flash Cards that can be used for practice as well. Please speak with your child and determine which would be best in your child’s case. Many of the students are already using the timed tests at school and could benefit more from the Flash Cards. Print them (and cut them out if need be) and your child will be ready to study! Thank you so much in advance for your efforts in helping your child this way as it will be so
beneficial for them now and in the long run.
We are almost finished with this round of rotations for Science and when we return from Winter Break our Class will begin rotating to Miss Cerny’s room for Weather while I teach Mrs. Cox’s Class Rocks, Minerals, and Soil and Miss Cerny’s Class will be learning all about Utah’s Environments and Biomes from Miss Cox! This has been and will continue to be an exciting year for Science in 4th grade!
We began a new Spelling list this week and we will finish it up and take the test on Monday or Tuesday, then we will not have another until we return after Winter Break!

A Couple Other December Reminders:

*Christmas Sing, Tomorrow, December 14, 2017 (4th Grade sings at 10:00 a.m.! All Families are invited.

*Wear your Ugly Christmas Sweater this Friday!! Or wear Spirit Wear! This is not a free dress down…just a fun addition of the ugly Christmas sweater!

Monday Monologue…Week of November 27 – December 1, 2017

Cheeseburger Letter

Welcome back from Thanksgiving Break. I hope everyone enjoyed their time off. We are now going to get down to business and work hard to complete all of our assignments we need to finish before we leave for Winter Break!

This week in Eureka Math we have reached the Middle of module 3. We have been doing our daily work on Zearn.org, which mirrors Eureka Math exactly. Today we finished Lesson 13. If your child has not finished Lesson 13 on Zearn.org, it is now Homework. We will review for our Mid-Module Test tomorrow and take the test on Wednesday.

We are on Lesson 9 for Spelling this wee, however, students will not get their lists until tomorrow morning.

We are still continuing to work on James and the Giant Peach with our Sister schools for Literature. Also, please remember their are both, a Reading Calendar and a Book Report (Informational) due on December 1, 2017.

***Please, if you have not done so already, send back the signed permission slip for  our class to have a class pet, Cheeseburger the Russian Tortoise. The letter is attached. We are only waiting on 1 Permission slip and if it comes back with a yes on it, Cheeseburger can move to our school this weekend! Thank you!***

Have a wonderful week and please do not hesitate to Email me if you have any questions or concerns.

 

 

 

 

Tuesday Talk…Week of November 13 – 17, 2017

Dear Parents and Students,

Math: Today we did Module 3, Lesson 7 in Eureka Math. Each day students are participating in a Mini-Lesson with the teacher and then we are using Zearn.org daily as well. This week we will complete lessons 7, 8, 9 and 10. If the students do not finish during school, their lesson on Zearn.org becomes Homework, just like any other assignment. Thank you for reminding your child about this at home.

Spelling: We will not have Spelling this week or next week. We will begin Spelling again after Fall Break.

Reading: This week we will continue reading James and the Giant Peach. We are on Chapter 14 tomorrow and the class is enjoying it immensely, as am I. This is definitely a highlight of 4th grade every year as students get to interact weekly with our other Campuses. This year we are partners with Lehi.

Science: Our class is still rotating to Mrs. Cox for Science and they are learning all about Utah’s Environments.

***Please, if you have not done so already, send back the signed permission slip for  our class to have a class pet, Cheeseburger the Russian Tortoise. We are only waiting on 2 Permission slips and if those two come back with a yes on them, Cheeseburger can move to our school this weekend! Thank you!***

Have a wonderful week and please do not hesitate to Email me if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Monday Monster Monologue…Week of Halloween, October 30 – November 3, 2017

Happy Monday! I am glad to be back after a nice weekend. Term 1 ended on Friday, which means Term 2 began today. The students are also very excited for Halloween tomorrow. Please remember, students are able to dress up as long as the costumes are modest with no blood, gore, weapons, face paint, or masks. This went out in the Monday updates and on Facebook earlier today as well. We will not be having a school parade, however we will have Halloween activities and assignments throughout the day in our class, as well as a short, Rated “G” movie at the end of the day (It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown). If you do not want your child to participate in this movie, please let me know today by Emailing me and I will provide another room where your child can work quietly on something else during the movie. Also, please remember, If your student chooses not to wear a costume, then the alternative dress is a regular uniform.

For the past couple of weeks we have been working on a fun, opinion/descriptive writing assignment called, “Monster Cafe”. One of our many fun activities tomorrow will be to hear the presentations of the “Monster Menus”/Restaurants your children have created. During our Language Arts hour, directly after lunch (at 12:30 p.m.) these performances will begin. They will continue until 1:50 p.m., which should give us plenty of time to get through all of the students presentations. If you would like to join us for this activity, you are invited. Each set of partners will take 3-4 minutes or less to present and if we keep it rolling right along we should be able to get finished with time to spare. However, there are always things that do not go as planned, so if, for some reason, we do not get through everyone tomorrow, we will finish the presentations on Wednesday, during Language Arts.

 

We will not be doing Spelling this week, so please do not look for a Spelling list.

Our last week for our Rocks, Minerals, and Soils Unit in Science has been extended. I feel very fortuneite to have this extra time to work on this with my class. We all enjoy Science and will now be able to perform a much anticipated experiment and break open a few Geodes before Friday. Next week my class will be rotating to Ms. Cox’s room for a new Unit on Utah’s Biomes/Environments. This Unit is a very interesting one for the students.

I did not receive all of the permission letters back from everyone by Friday, so I was unable to bring Cheeseburger the Russian Tortoise to school to be our classroom pet. Please check to see if your child turned theirs in and if not, please read and sign it so she may come this wee.  If, for some reason your child does not get this letter home to you, you may print it from this page to send back to school.

Monday Messages…Week of October 23 – 27, 2017

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome back form Fall Break. I hope it was nice and relaxing for you. We have had a busy day already this morning and we have a busy, but fun couple of weeks ahead of us until the end Term 1. This week is Anti-Bullying Spirit Week. We have many fun plans for the students throughout the entire week. Attached you will find our poster with the list of activities. Please read through it carefully.

Please Click on this link for Anti-Bullying Spirit Week: Anti-Bullying Spirit Week Oct 23

In conjunction with Anti-bullying week, we are also “celebrating” Red Ribbon Week.  The 23rd-31st is Red Ribbon week nationally.  To celebrate this week, all students received a red ribbon to wear throughout the week.  Each ribbon has a number on it, and every day we will call numbers for prizes.  These numbers will be called at the end of the day every day.  f a student has a ribbon with that number on it, they can come down to the office, show their ribbon, and get their prize.  They must have the ribbon with that number on it to receive the prize (so if they lose it on Monday, and their number is called on Tuesday, they are out of luck, and another number will be called.)  This is for all grades, K-9 and for the teachers and teacher’s Aides! Be sure to keep track of your red ribbon so you will have it if you win!

Parents, please be sure you are helping your child re-do any mistakes on Exit Tickets and Tests to bring up Math scores to improve grades. You make check Aspire to see those changes and to keep informed as I try to enter grades at least once per week.

In Eureka Math this week we will be taking our End-of-Module Test for Module 2, and we will move on to Module 3. Today and Tomorrow will be review and the test will be on Wednesday, then we will begin Module 3 on Thursday or Friday, depending on how long it takes the students to get through the test.

We took our Spelling Pre-test for Unit 7 today. The class has written their new words into their L.A. notebooks and they have their new Spelling Contract to work on in class. The Spelling Test will be on Friday, so please help your child study the words at home if need be.

We are diligently working on our Monster Cafe Writing. The class is off to an amazing start! They are working on this writing project daily now and we will present on Halloween (next Tuesday). Parents who are available are welcome to come see their children present. Please look for more information on this topic to come home in the next few days.

This will be our last week for our Rocks, Minerals, and Soils Unit in Science. Next week my class will be rotating to Ms. Cerny’s room for a new Unit on Weather. The Weather Unit is a very fun Unit and the students will come away with the knowledge to help them determine the weather all throughout the remainder of the year. We find that the students enjoy this particular unit over most throughout 4th grade so I am very excited for our class!

Below you will find a link to a letter that will be coming home with your child tomorrow. This letter has been long anticipated by your children. I have a female Russian Tortoise who likes to come and live with us in our classroom during the school year. However, before she can come I must have permission from every parent of the students in my class. Please watch for this letter in the Homework folder of your child’s docket on Tuesday and read, fill out, sign, and return the letter to school by the end of the week. As long as I have everyone’s permission by Friday, Cheeseburger the Tortoise can come to school this coming weekend and be here on Monday to meet the class! If, for some reason your child does not get this letter home to you, you may print it from this page to send back to school.

Monday Monologue…Week of October 9 – 13, 2017

Dear Parents and Students,

I would like to begin this message by explaining a few little things about the Aspire Grade book. I have had many parents sending Emails asking about Assignments with empty slots (no grade in them). The empty slots are not missing work or a missed assignment. If you see an empty slot it is because I am still grading the work and have not entered the grade yet. I can create an assignment that is due at a future time down the road and leave the slots blank until the time the assignment is due. Then once I correct the work I will enter the grade. If a student has a missing assignment the slot will have an “M” in it for missing. If the slot has a “0” it is because the students received a zero on the assignment. If there is an “E” in the slot it is an excused assignment. teachers can choose to excuse an assignment due to absences longer than a few days, or for classwork that cannot be made up. I hope this clears up any confusion you may have. If you still have other questions about grading, please feel free to send another Email.

This week is our first round of Parent/Teacher Conferences. I think the majority of the class is now signed up and I am looking forward to sitting down with each individual student and their parents and making some goals and getting some things squared away for the end of Term 1 coming up on October 27, 2017. Please also remember, we have Fall Break coming up next week from October 16th to the 20th, so if your child has any missing work they will need to really buckle down and possibly even do some extra Homework to get caught up before the 27th.

This week, due to Parent/Teacher Conferences, we have three Early Out Days, beginning on Wednesday, October 11, 2017 and running through Friday, October 13, 2017. School will be out at 12:35 each day. On Wednesday the conferences will begin at 2:00 p.m. and will continue every 20 minutes until 6:00 p.m. On Thursday the appointments begin a bit earlier at 1:20 p.m., but still run every 20 minutes until 7:00 p.m. I also have a few appointments right after school on Friday, so please, if you have not signed up yet, click on this link  to sign up now:   http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0c4faaad2fabfb6-october1

Remember, our awesome Scholastic Book Fair begins tomorrow and will be open the rest of the week all during the hours of parent/Teacher Conferences! Reading is so fundamental in a child’s education and this is a great opportunity to pick up some great books for your child or children to enjoy throughout the year!

Friday, October 13, 2017 is our Ascent Family Skate Night at Classic Skating in Sandy. Join your friends and classmates and come have a fantastic night skating!

For Spelling this week the students are on List 6. It is a review list of various words from Lessons one through five. The class wrote all of their words in their L.A. Notebooks today and they should now be in the back of their dockets if you would like to begin studying for the Test on Friday! They can also be found on the Spelling Page of the Blog and Any list will work, because they are all the same this week.

If you have other questions or comments, please feel free to send an Email at any time. Have a wonderful week.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Smith

 

Tuesday Talk…Week of October 2 – 6, 2017

Dear Parents and Students,
October is upon us and we will be adding a few new and exciting pieces to our curriculum. The first is the monthly Book Reports. I will send home the documents for the book reports tomorrow. I have also attached them to the Weekly Email (sent previously today) and uploaded them to the Blog. So you may print them if they become lost or if you just need to read through them to understand how they work. The actual Projects to choose from are all in a pink book inside my classroom. Every month when I hand out the new Book report Form, each student should go to the pink book and choose their project for the month.You will find the assigned Genres for each month on the Directions form. I cannot wait for this to get underway. The Reading Homework is my favorite, by far of anything the students do throughout the year as it really lets their creativity shine through. One thing that really helps is for parents to check in with their child periodically throughout each month to be sure they are on track to finish their book and the report by the end of the month as this project is worth a total of 30 points each month, which can be a huge part of their reading grade. Look for the forms to come home by the end of the week along with a new Reading Calendar for the month of October.
Today we finished our End-of-Module 2 Test in Eureka Math and we will be moving on to Module 2 beginning tomorrow with Lesson #1. There are only a total of 5 lessons in this small module, so we should complete it by the end of next week. There is also only and End-of-Module Test for this module and no Mid-Module-Test, so by week after next we should be moving right along to Module 3. Many of the parents have sent their children to me or written Emails to me letting me know that the Math seems to easy for their children. I know for some students it seems really easy right now, but at least the first 20, and even to a point, the first 30 lessons of the school year are a lot of review. As the year progresses, so will the lessons. In fact, the math gets much harder in 4th grade as the year moves on, so please bear with me as all of Module One was basically review. Please give it a bit more time to see those challenges come for your child. Another aspect of Eureka Math that perhaps you do not know is that Eureka breaks down the problems and concepts into smaller parts than when we adults were their age and learning to do math. Eureka Math is also Unique because it teaches to each individual child by giving a variety of way to solve a problem instead of just teaching one way. This is very beneficial as one child may not learn the same as the next. Eureka Math shows us that any child with any learning style can do math.
The students took their Spelling Pre-tests yesterday and wrote their lists inside their L.A. Notebooks, which should be in the backs of their Dockets. If you feel your child needs to study at home throughout the week to get 100% on their test on Friday, that is where you will find the words. You can also find the word lists on the Blog, of coarse! Spelling contracts are called, “Spin it to Win it!” this week and will be worked on each day in class. On Thursday, if this contract has not been finished, your child will bring it home for homework. Please do not work on the contract at home until Thursday night!
****Parent/Teacher Conferences are on Wednesday, October 11, Thursday, October 12, and Friday, October 13, 2017. Please sign up for a time to meet with me on Wednesday or Thursday. If neither of these days will work for you, please Email me separately to set up a time that will work for you on Friday, October 13, 2017. The Sign-Up Form went home in a previous Email today, but if for some reason you did not receive it, here is the link again:               http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0c4faaad2fabfb6-october1                Please click on the link provided and sign up. Also, please note, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday Please remember if you have any questions or concerns I have not addresses, you may Email me at any time. I try to answer my Emails as quickly and thoroughly as possible.
Thank you and have a Wonderful Evening.

A Long, but VERY Important Monday Monologue…Week of September 25 – 29, 2017

Dear Parents and Students,

Last week we had the opportunity to use a Rocks and Minerals Toolkit from the Natural History Museum of Utah during our lessons in Science. I also have a variety of Rocks and Minerals in our classroom and in our Science Closet here at the school. It has been fun learning about Rocks, Minerals, and Soil so far. Today we learned how the Rock Cycle works and if you go to the Science page you will find picture of some of the rocks and minerals we were able to work with.

Now, for an important message. I know it is long, but please read to the end. 

For some of us, it’s just our nature to talk a blue streak; other more silent types mull things over in their head. I know I am a talker and it seems that many of the students in the class are as well. Girls and boys have different levels of chattiness and in our class we have a few chatty girls and and abundance of chatty boys!

I have read that non-stop talking can sometimes be a child’s way to ask for an audience. Children who feel they aren’t being noticed will find a way to get noticed and talking incessantly is one way. However, there is a time and a place for talking and during a lesson is not the time or the place. I wanted to share some of the ways I am trying to help our class be less talkative and more productive. My hope in sharing is that you will praise your children at home for a job well done if they have a great day, but that you will also lend a hand in reminding your children of the importance of listening and trying to keep our chattiness in check on our off days.

One thing I ask is how one thinks it might feel for someone who was really excited to share something, but didn’t ever get a turn to talk. I think every child can relate to this. I also post our daily schedule so students can see just what our day looks like. I explain that time dominos. I use actual dominos to demonstrate. I set them up and then I ask what happens to them when I push the first one over. The students respond by telling me that one falling over causes the next and then the next to fall until all of them have fallen down. I then explain that time is just like this. If we push our first allotment of time into our second and then into our third and so on, then eventually we just run out of time.

I want to give all of the children a voice and I respect their opinions — I want to hear them, so I try not to squelch that intellect and excitement to share as much as possible. The problem is that sometimes it’s too hard to sit for a time when all the children want to do is tell me, or their neighbor things, but there are times when  everyone has to sit and be quiet so our time doesn’t domino. If our Math time dominos into our Specials, then we must finish our Math during a time when I would like to give the children a break. I don’t feel that taking their Brain break (and therefore their morning snack from them is helpful, so instead I would like to ask them, “What would help you?” And then problem-solve. Perhaps if the children can help to come up with the solution, it’s more likely to be successful.

Please remind your children to talk less so they can learn and earn more.

Math: Today we did Lesson 14 in Eureka Math. This week we are using our understanding of the Place Value System to decompose multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm. We will complete lessons 14, 15, 16, 17, and 18 in class this week.

Spelling: Today the class took their pre-test for Spelling and wrote their words in their L.A. notebooks. The new word lists are also on the Blog. Please help your child study their words at home if they need the extra practice throughout the week. Some students received a lower score on their Spelling Test last week and I believe they may just need a bit of extra practice. We will do our Spelling Contract throughout the week in class. Please remember, you will find the Language Arts notebook in the back of your child’s Docket behind all of the folders. We will have a Spelling Test on Friday.

Science: We are working on our Rocks, Minerals, and Soils Unit. Please see the Science Page for more information.

***Please remember to send back the snack size baggie with a non-perishable snack and a family picture in it for your child to put in our emergency pack, if you have not done it already. We are still missing a good amount and want to ensure that your child has a bit of comfort and something to eat in the event of an emergency at the school. It is always good to plan ahead.***

Have a wonderful week and please do not hesitate to Email me if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you so much,

Mrs. Smith
