We have been working on making predictions and using context clues to discover the meaning of unfamiliar words. On Wednesday, August 31st students will have a small 10 question quiz to demonstrate these skills. Teachers will always be looking for the students to highlight key words, phrases and sentences that helped them arrive at their answer. Keep up the hard work.
Our future scientists now know that structural adaptations are a party of the body, like camouflage. Can you spot the camouflaged butterflies in our classroom? Will they “survive” all year blending in the background?
Our first spelling test based off of our word study homework will be Thursday, August 25th. Your children will receive their words on Friday, August 19th. Look for the words to be written in their agenda, they should all be cut out and in their word study notebook pouch, published on this webpage, and the words are also available at www.spellingcity.com/clander/
This evening, August 15th your child brought home a health history form in their green Thursday Folder. As a parent or guardian you will need to fill out the front, back, and sign your name before the school can accept it as complete. Please complete this form as soon as possible.
Look out! Tomorrow, August 16th children will be bringing home a great deal of paper work for adults. Please check back tomorrow for more information.
I would just like to take the time to say thank you. Fourth grade had a wonderful turnout for open house tonight. I met many new faces. Thank you for making me feel welcome to the BGE community. In short, I loved seeing all of the talented, hard working, and great students we have at this school. Here’s to a year of hard work and growth!
Welcome to a new school year! By the way, the title to this post is how one says, “A hundred thousand welcomes,” in the Irish language. To be truthful I am nervous, eager, and privileged to help you grow as young people and students this year. Please come to check out the classroom and drop off school supplies on Thursday, August 11th. Our fourth grade team looks forward to meeting you.
