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).

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!

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.
