Please make sure to sign and return the bottom portion of your child's grade card if you haven't already. Some students had lower grades for math because they did not pass their multiplication tables through the 9's. We will continue to take two multiplication timed tests a week for the remainder of the year. Fourth grade begins the year with multiplication, memorizing the facts now will be very beneficial in the future.

MAP preparation has started. It is very important for your child to be at school each day to help make sure they receive all of the information and practice. Camp MAP on Tuesday and Thursday evening will continue through April 18th.

Don't forget there is no school next Friday, March 29 and Monday.

In order to practice letter writing for the MAP test, we wrote a friendly letter to a musher (a person guiding the dog sled) during the Iditarod. We would like to send these letters next week. Please send a stamp or 50 cents to school by Tuesday of next week tohelp pay for the cost to send the letters. I appreciate your help!

We will be learning continue learning about numbers and shapes in a pattern next week during math and reviewing all concepts throughout the year for MAP testing during Camp MAP.

Reading minutes increase to 90 minutes per week for fourth quarter. Please make it a priority for your child to read 12-15 minutes each night in order to read the required number of minutes. It is very important to discuss with your child about the book they read- characters, setting (where and when the  story takes place), the problem and solution, etc.
