I apologize for the extremely long amount of time between blog updates. We have been keeping very busy here in the 4th grade. As you know during the past couple of months we've been on a couple of field trips, had a few long vacations, studied chapters 3-5 in math, completed mystery reports, and had guest speakers to enhance our learning. The students have also been hard at work in their writing as well as reading. We've studied rocks, minerals, and soil in our science unit as well as amphibians. We've been busy and we plan to stay busy over the next three weeks as we anticipate yet another break.

- Spelling - We are currently working on list # 10. Bonus words are numerator & denominator. Please help your child study their list each day--I can see a huge difference in results when the words are studied.
- Homework -
- Math pages 101-104. Please guide your child through his/her homework, checking as you go.
- Nightly reading. Your should have seen a couple of notes yesterday. We are doing a Reading Challenge with Thunder Kids, so please note the required reading minutes for the months of December (690) and January (660).
Thank you so much for sending me such sweet kids to work with--they are each among the blessings I count daily.
