9.17.2017 I enjoyed getting to know your children better this past week and hope they are starting to feel the rhythm of being in fourth grade.
This week we will be getting our first spelling list to study. It will not look like the typical “pretest” kind of list. Your children will be sorting their spelling words on Monday morning and then will bring them home to start studying on Monday afternoon. For this list only, your children will only have 3 nights to study, because the test will be given on Thursday. Spelling words will usually come home on Friday afternoons to give students 6 days to study for the spelling test on Thursday. I told your students that I thought these words are pretty easy and I thought they would be fine with only 3 nights to study. If you feel that your child cannot learn how to spell these words in 3 nights, please let me know and we can make other arrangements.
Don’t forget, our Back to School Night THIS Wednesday at 5:30. I am very much looking forward to visiting with you. Please make every effort to come, even parents who have been to my Back-to-School Nights before. There is a lot I would like to share with you including a new approach to homework that I am trying this year. If you cannot make it please let me know by way of a note, an email or a call, ahead of time so that I can get you the information I will be sharing. Also please remember this is a "parents’ event" only; your children will be able to come with you to our Open House (in March) to show you their work and what they have been doing in school.
