THIRD AND FOURTH GRADE NEWS
March 19, 2018
Good day to you!
Thank you so much for the wonderful support you give the teachers by having your students at our parents’ meeting to participate. The children truly enjoy performing for an audience and the preparations that goes with it! There will be two, free-dress days, Friday, March 23, and Wednesday, March 28.
EASTER PARTY LIST:
I have placed our party list on a desk downstairs along with the other primary grades’ lists. We already have ice cream and Hawaiian punch and 7 Up; therefore, the list is not long. If you would like to contribute bring small, bottled water or boxed-100% juice.
MATH FACTS ~ “That’s the Way We Like It!”
We are on a roll! Congratulations to Mahlaysia, Nathan, and Ajooni for passing their timed-tests last week! Megan and Ajooni are now working on the super test – 80 problems in one minute, and it can be done! We’re cheering for the third graders to join the fourth graders on “The Math Facts” bulletin board.
CONGRATULATIONS for having “One or No Lates” for the month of February:
Nathan, Omar, and Mahlaysia went to Wendy’s last Friday for turning in their homework on time and following directions, “Kudos!”
ONE-GALLON SIZED, PLASTIC, MILK CONTAINER:
Milk containers were due at school last Friday. I understand that everyone doesn’t drink milk and may have a different kind of container and knowing this, I happily traded out those containers with ones that I had. If your child did not bring any container, he/she will be making his/her Easter baskets using a white paper bag.
THIRD/FOURTH AUCTION CANVAS:
“Being made from our hands for your hearts.” I have captured the third and fourth graders throughout this school year with pictures! In addition to photographs, students are creating artwork to be placed on the canvas for decorations! It will truly be a-once-in-a-lifetime treasure that you will want to have for years to look back on your child’s 2017/2018 as leaders of Lea’s… “the age of innocence and fun,” priceless! I plan to work on it over Easter vacation.
FOURTH GRADE MATH TEST:
Mrs. Gerard will be testing the fourth graders on Thursday, March 22.
RECORDER TEST for both grades are scheduled on WEDNESDAY, MARCH 21!
The third graders will be tested on “Merrily We Roll Along” and the fourth graders will be tested on “Rock On!”
CREATIVE WRITING AUTOBIOGRAPHIES:
We will be finishing up the rough draft of our biographies by midweek and begin the final copy for next week. I will be using Easter vacation to read and grade these as well.
