It is the 4th nine weeks already! This month we are working on getting ready for 4th grade by refining students’ time management and problem solving strategies. Be sure to continue to complete homework every night; if there are any changes in homework with testing or as the year comes to a close I will update you via Remind.

Here are some important dates to note:

Also for your listening pleasure… the perimeter song! This catchy tune has been helping us in math over the past week. Ask your student to show you the dance moves!

 

I “Mustache” You a Question…

On Friday students created survey, collected data on their question from the class and formed a graph as a project for math. To add a little fun, we added some fake mustaches to the equation. As the students went around asking the question for their survey, they held it and said “I mustache you a question..”. Here are the pictures I able to get. I tried to get everyone, but they were so excited that I missed some!

Be on the lookout to see their data and graphs hanging up in the hallway outside our room.

Reading Carousel and Rounding Song

On Thursday during our whole group reading, we did a “Reading Carousel” activity in which students read short stories in groups to find the Main Idea and supporting details. The students loved getting to read along with their peers, rotating around to each book and sharing their findings!

This past week we have been working on rounding. Here is the song we’ve been practicing to remember our rules. Feel free to sing it at home to help out your student!
