Welcome to 4A

This Week in 4th Grade

Weekly Update 12/3

There's a couple of things that I wanted to bring to your attention as we get another week started here in 4A.

VIP Day: Today your scholar will be coming home with a blue and white striped invitation for VIP Day on Dec. 20. Miss Villareal and Mrs. Kopplin came up with this idea and the kids are very excited about it. Scholars are allowed to invite 1 important person in their life to come to school with them in the morning. We will be walking to Holy Rosary for an all school mass and then coming back to our classroom for a fun activity. The VIPs are invited to stay for lunch (brunch lunch) if they would like. VIP day will run from 7:55-12:30 at the SSPP campus (HR is doing the same thing but their schedule may look different than ours). VIPs have the choice of walking with us or they can drive to HR and meet us there. VIPs not required to stay the whole time if it doesn't work with their schedules. I need to know if your child is bringing a VIP and if the VIP is taking hot lunch (it will be a cost of $3) by Monday Dec. 17. This way I can make sure I have enough materials for our activity and I can get the lunch count in to the correct people. You can send your child's RSVP on sheet of paper or on the back of the VIP invitation. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Rosary Club will be held this Wednesday right after school.

Thursday All School Mass: 4th grade has mass parts on Thursday. The parts are as follows: Xavier- server, Roman and Josniel- petition readers, Kayleigh, Lauren, Josalyn- Gift bearers. 

Buddy Project- On Thursday 4A will also be doing a buddy project with their buddy class in the afternoon. Please make sure your scholar has winter gear (coat, gloves, hat, scarf) for this day since we will be walking to the other campus.

Friday Spirit Wear- Scholars may be dressed in spirit wear on Friday. No ripped jeans or leggings as pants. Please refer to the handbook for dress expectations.

I believe this covers everything. Again if you have any questions do not hesitate to ask!

Welcome Back!

Hello 4th grade families and welcome back from Thanksgiving break!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and was able to spend quality time with their families.

This week 4th grade resumes back to their regular ELA homework schedule. Today both classes received a spelling worksheet. This is the worksheet that is given out every Monday and is due on Tuesday. Scholars are expected to sort their words 2 different ways, examples of sorts are listed on the bottom. Scholars may also sort their words by their patterns if they would like. Scholars need to sort a total of 10 words to receive full credit (this is a 10 point assignment).

Scholars were assigned their reading log today as well. The reading log is located in their assignment notebook. They are required to write down how many pages they read, how long they read for (should be 20 min), they need an adult's signature, and then they sign their own reading log. This is worth 4 points and it is due every Friday.

Tomorrow they will receive their Tic Tac Toe spelling sheets. This is to be completed in their spelling notebooks and turned in on Friday.

Scholars are expected to write their spelling words into their assignment notebooks every Monday (it is part of our morning routine) so that they have a copy in case they left them at school.

In Social Studies 4th grade will continue learning about the early native settlers here in Wisconsin.

It was great meeting with all of you last week to talk about your scholars. We have an amazing class this year and I feel so blessed to be able to teach these scholars this year. As I said in conferences, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to email and ask! This week we go back to our regular homework schedule. We had a spelling sheet due today, the spelling tic tac toe sheet due on Friday, and a reading log due on Friday as well. 4A will not have Math today because of our field trip so there will most likely not be math homework until tomorrow. 

In ELA, 4A has started our novel, Percy Jackson Lightening Thief, and they are loving it! As we are reading the book we are working on describing the characters in the story and understanding the different figurative language (similes and metaphors), and prepositional phrases that we find in the book. 

We have a Social Studies test tomorrow. Scholars received their review sheets last week and we will be reviewing in class today. Next week we will start our next chapter in our Social Studies books which is on early settlers in WI.

On Thursday the following scholars will be in choir: Khamiah and Evelyn.

A Night with Bango

A couple weeks ago Xavier, Stormy, and Roman had the opportunity to represent CEE at an event with SHARP Literacy at Discovery World. These scholars greeted guests as they arrived at the venue and then had the opportunity to ask questions the Milwaukee Bucks basketball players that were there! Great job Roman, Stormy, and Xavier! #allin #service #community
