Week of Oct. 8th

date 10/07/2018 author Julie Rohling category Uncategorized comment Leave a comment

A couple things for this week...
We will have a lesson on kindness Monday afternoon.
PE will be outside as long as the weather permits M-W.
We will have a fire drill this week.  
The fire truck is scheduled to visit us this week on Thursday at 12:00.  
A Sumdog Math contest starts on Thursday.
Thursday there will be a fundraiser for our Eduction Foundation.  You may go to the high school parking lot and participate in Drive 4 Your School.  You can test drive a new vehicle at no expense to you!  You just take the time to drive around the block.  Every test drive will donate $20 to the foundation!
In Math we'll be testing on our Input/Output tables this week.  As always, homework comes on Tuesdays.
In reading we're talking about making inferences.  This can be a really fun skill!  
We have less than a week and a half to finish up the quarter which means the AR reading for the quarter is coming to an end.  Students must have 9 points by the 17th.
If you have any questions, please let me know.

October is Here!

Not a whole lot out of the ordinary this week.
In Math we'll continue working on input/output tables as we figure out this algebra unit!  Remember, homework is every Tuesday unless noted otherwise in the planner.  Facts are practiced every day!
In Reading we are starting our next unit.  We'll be practicing making inferences.  That is using what we know and the evidence in the text to come to a conclusion.  
Remember, only 2 weeks left in the quarter.  The goal is a minimum of 9 points.  A printout will be coming home today so you can see your child's progress thus far.  80% accuracy is the target as well.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
Have a great week!

Homecoming Week

date 09/24/2018 author Julie Rohling category Uncategorized comment Leave a comment

Dress up days:  
Monday: pajama day
Tuesday: Class color day (4th grade is purple)
Wednesday: Beach Day
Thursday: Crazy/Neon day
Friday: Spirit Day
On Friday we will be walking to the MS/HS for a pepfest that begins at 9am.
We are moving on to our next unit in Math this week.  We will be focusing on some algebra with a lot of work on input/output tables.  Look for the multiplication facts test to come home this week.  Keep in mind that we will continue to work on facts all year long.  We would appreciate it if you could help with facts at home as well.
In Reading we're continuing with finding the main idea and details in a passage.  We'll assess that later in the week.  
Only a couple more weeks in the quarter, so please make sure AR books are being read and tested.
Have a great homecoming week!
Miss Rohling

Week of Sept 17th

date 09/17/2018 author Julie Rohling category Uncategorized comment Leave a comment

For the most part this is a pretty normal week.  We have a presentation on "Love of Learning" today from Mrs. Ourada and Mrs. Scheffler at the end of the day today.  
Friendly reminder that Monday is our library day.  Please make sure your child is bringing their books back daily so we can read them in class too, but Mondays especially so they can get new books if needed.  
In Math this week we'll continue working on multiplication facts.  We do all facts through 12.  12s are really hard for kids.  I would greatly appreciate any help you can provide with the multiplication facts.  These will resurface all year long!  
In Reading we're working on finding the main idea in a text.  We also will be doing our first reader's theater play.  We do those about once a month.  Reminder about the AR points...to be on target to meet the goal of 9 points this quarter, students should be at about 5 points  now.  AR tests can be taken daily.  
If you have any questions, please let me know!
Thanks,
Miss Rohling

Week of Sept 10th

A few things going on this week:
PE will be outside later this week-dress appropriate
Tuesday:  Field Trip to Lamberton, Family Fun Night 6-7pm
Wednesday: Picture day
In Reading we're working on finding the main idea in a text.  
Reminder, for AR your child should be at about 5 points so far if they are on target to meet their quarter goal.  Let me know if you need information on how to check that.
In Math we're learning about multiplication facts and strategies to solve those.  The multi-digit addition and subtraction test will be coming home today.  Review that and check to see if your child needs more practice on that skill.
Have a great week!

September is here

I hope everyone had a wonderful Labor Day weekend!  My time was spent with family.
On Tuesday we will take our STAR Math test.  This Friday we will have bus training from 12-12:30.  Should be a review by now as fourth graders. :)
Grandma Bette will be starting with us this week.  She is a grandparent volunteer who will come in to help out as needed for 45 minutes daily.  She assists me with working with students in small groups so that we can all stay on task.  If your kid is talking about a grandparent in our class, that's her!
Mark your calendars for Tuesday, September 11th.  We will hold Family Fun Night from 6-7:00pm.  Please come play a few games at school!  Hopefully the weather is nice that evening.
We took our first test of the year in Math on multi-digit addition and subtraction.  It went pretty well.  Please continue to work on facts with your child as that was the most common mistake on tests.  We'll be jumping into multiplication and division facts this week!  Look for Math homework to come home tonight!
In Reading we'll be getting our first unit underway which is main idea and details.  You can support this at home by asking your child what they read.  Hopefully they can do a little retell for you and answer any questions. 
If you have any questions, please let me know.

2nd week of school

date 08/27/2018 author Julie Rohling category Uncategorized comment Leave a comment

We had such a great first week of school!  I can't wait to see how week two unfolds!  A couple things going on this week...
STAR Reading test (to collect baseline data for the year on different skills)
FAST ( to collect data on reading fluency)
Fire Drill
ALICE Drill
NO SCHOOL FOR STUDENTS ON FRIDAY
This week we'll be working hard on our multi-digit addition and subtraction problems and hoping to test on Thursday or early after Labor Day.  Math HOMEWORK will start Tuesday and will be given every Tuesday.  It is expected to be returned the following day.  Later in the year, we'll pick it up a little bit and have homework twice a week.  
In Reading we'll continue to build our Reading stamina.  Today will be our first day to go to the library here at school.  Students may bring library books home, but we need them coming back to school on a daily basis as we read in class every day.  Books from home or the public library are welcome at school as well.  
We've been working hard on remembering our cursive writing from the last two years.  So far we've worked on the following lowercase letters: l, h k, t, i, u, and e.  We'll be going over a few letters every day.  If students aren't finishing their work on this in class, they may be taking it home.  You'll know this when you check their home and back folders every night and sign their planners! :)
If you have any questions, please let me know.  Have a great week!
