Birthdays - You are welcome to send in a snack for your child's birthday. Please let me know a couple days ahead of time, so I can arrange for students with food allergies. On the scheduled day, feel free to send it in with your child, or drop it off in the office. Since we have limited time, snacks that are easy to give out quickly are appreciated.

Fourth graders are expected to read 20 minutes each night and get their reading log signed by a parent or guardian. The students may two nights a week, so they should be reading 5 nights each week. The books that the students read should be at their independent reading level. They can use their five finger rule to help them decide if it's easy, just right, or challenging for them.  They should be reading books that are "just right" for them.

Rocket Math: In our class, we use Rocket Math to practice our math facts. Since these facts are so important to successfully completing all kinds of math problems, it's important that students study them a little each night. One way that students can practice the Rocket Math facts is to make flash cards out of index cards, and only practice the facts that they've highlighted on the list that they were given. As they move up the rocket, they should highlight the new facts that they need to study and make flash cards for them, too. Therefore, they will practice the facts in level A up to and including the letter that they are currently trying to pass. They are also supposed to take the sheets home, if they don't pass, so they can study for the next time.
