February 18-22, 2019
Thanks to all of the students for their Valentine's Day treats!  It is appreciated.  The following includes some of the things we will be working on this week or in the near future.
"Famous Person" Project-Students were assigned their "Famous Person" three weeks ago and began doing research, first by taking out the corresponding library book and then beginning work during technology class.  We wil do research in class, but students must be completely finished with everything, or otherwise they will need to finish it at home.  This includes coming up with their costumes and any props they may want to use for their presentations.  Students will practice by presenting to other grades on March 14.  Family members may attend in the afternoon on March 15.
SCO-Frankfort Square's School Community Organization is is need of voluteers to help out at various functions, including school parties.  If you can assist in any capacity, please send in a note with your child and I will forward it to the SCO members.
Reading/Language/Spelling-For the next week 4th grade students will be reading, discussing, and working on skills that tie in to the novel "Number the Stars," by Lois Lowry. Set in 1943, the novel tells about Annemarie Johansen, a 10-year old Danish girl living in Copenhagen during World War Two. The novel follows Annemarie and her family as they attempt to save their Jewish friends, the Rosens.  "Number the Stars" was highly acclaimed at the time of its release and won the 1990 Newberry Medal for children's literature.  As in stories from our text and other novels read this year, students will take corresponding spelling, vocabulary, and comprehension quizzes. In Language, students will continue working with the verbs unit and continue some independent writing.
Math-Some of the objectives for this week include solving word problems involving addition and subtraction with fractions. Much of what we do in Math has the expectation that students have a strong multiplication foundation, so they should be studying and practicing facts at home.  We will take timed multiplication quizzes throughout the year.  Currently, students get one and one half minutes to do approximately 30 multiplication facts.  The next quiz will be on the facts of 7. 
Science/Social Studies-We have been learning about the Midwest region of the United States. Students have also been learning about Abraham Lincoln, and the March on Washington. In Science, we will continue the STEMscopes unit on Energy and Speed, with a few experiments planned for the near future.
Test Retakes-Please note the download about our test retake policy at the bottom of this page.  Also, please keep in mind that test retakes are intended to be given periodically and should not be a regular occurence for students.  If that is the case, it would appear that students are not practicing/studying enough and/or taking this seriously.  Please encourage your child to study properly and with intent the first time so s/he doesn't need to retake tests over and over again. 
Assignment Notebooks-Students are expected to get their assignment notebooks signed daily, once parents have checked to make sure specific work has been completed.  Please note that sending in a note if your child forgets to bring home his/her assignment notebook does not count as a "signature."  We are trying to continue to make sure students are responsible by checking for everything before they leave, as well as having parents see what is due the next day. Thanks for your understanding.
Web Page-I will try my best to update our class web page every weekend from my home.  It is an expectation that students/parents will regularly read the page to help them stay informed about what is going on in the classroom and at school.  As a reminder, on Fridays I will have students write "Read our web page this weekend" in their assignment notebooks.
Recycling Contest-Thanks for continuing to send in plastic bags for our recycling contest.  We are doing a good job!
Quote-"I have found the best way to give advice to your children is to find out what they want and then advise them to do it."    Harry Truman
Be Responsible                      Be Respectful                          Be Safe
Thank you for regularly reading our web page and for your continued support.
                                                                             Sincerely, Mr. Jeffrey
