Dear Parents and families,

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  This week in 4th grade, we will be starting a new topic in Math and we will be working on our 6's and 7's multiplication facts!  Looking at the mad minutes (I've been giving 2 minutes lately, which seems to be helping) I can tell the students are studying and working hard on their math facts!  I'm very proud of the progress they're making!  We have started practicing our cursive writing.  We will also be having an open book Religion quiz this week.  Thank you to all the families that sent in pictures for our bulletin board, our fourth grade "pumpkins" look adorable in the hallway! Also, Halloween is Wednesday, don't forget to wear your costumes!!  Report cards for term 1 will be going home this week as well.  As always, feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns at lwall@materdolorosaschool.org.  I will try to respond as quickly as possible.  Thank you and have a great week!!

Mrs. Wall

P.S. Mrs. Rex has been checking to see if parents/guardians have signed their child's agenda.  Please make sure to look at your child's agenda each night and sign it, please. Thank you!

Dear Parents and Families,

             It was nice seeing many of you at Open House last week and I hope everyone had a nice, long weekend!  This week in 4th grade we will be reviewing the 4's and 5's for our multiplication practice.  Try to practice these math facts every night!!  Again, it's going to be very important to memorize the facts, as Math gets much more challenging in the fourth grade!!  Also, this week we will be doing an art project, making pumpkins for our bulletin board in the hallway.  I'd like to add a picture of your child to their pumpkin.  If you could please send in a "wallet size" photo of your child, it'd be much appreciated.  Also, a notice was sent home in regard to the 4th grade raffle basket.  Our theme is "trick or treat."  If you'd like to send your child in with any donations toward our basket, we'd certainly appreciate it!  Again, thank you for all you do and I hope everyone has a great week!!

Dear Parents and Families,

We are settling into the new school year nicely.  We have been practicing our multiplication facts and have even begun basic division!  We take a "mad minute" test every day to practice our times tables, with the Friday test counting towards a grade.  Mon-Thursday a times table sheet focusing on the facts we are working on for the week are sent home as part of your students' math homework.  Please have them practice nightly either by writing the facts over and over or by using a deck of flashcards at home.  It will be very important to master their facts this year.  We will be finishing up the first chapter in Math this week and that means a Chapter Test is coming!  I have left last week's update at the bottom of this page to remind families of our specials for the week.  Looking forward to a great week!

Dear Parents and families,

We are off to a good start in 4th grade!  We began somewhat of a schedule this week.  In math, we have begun practicing our multiplication facts and reviewing some skills that may have been learned in 3rd grade.  Please consider purchasing a pack of flash cards for your child and having your child practice their facts at home.  We will be doing a lot of practice with our facts in the coming weeks!  We have also begun switching classes between Mrs Wheatly and myself, as well as beginning our specials. As a reminder, please note the days we have specials below:

 

Monday: Art (every other week) and Music

Tuesday: Library (don’t forget your library books!)

Wednesday: Computers

Thursday: none at the moment  

Friday: Gym (make sure to wear your gym uniforms!)

 

Thank you!

Mrs  Wall
