Mrs. Martie’s Newsletter for the week of October 5, 2015
Dear Parents and Guardians,
This week your child will start using their brand new, REAL agenda that we ordered with some of our instructional money. We will use it just like our “homemade” ones, but these are much sturdier. They also have so kind of fun little activities for each week.
Please check that your student is doing their homework.
Important things to know about homework are:
• The homework sheet for the week, along with the spelling words, will be glued in your child’s agenda on Mondays.
• Please make sure your child reads TO you every night. They can check out books on Wednesday during library. However, if they need a new one before then, they can go before school.
• The spelling words are part of the reading skills for that week so please check that they are doing one menu item nightly and returning the assignment to school every day.
• I will send home a reading passage that your child needs to read to you nightly. There is 1 question to answer per day. Please sign and return these to me on Friday.
We will work on the following skills in Reading this nine weeks:
• Use consonants, consonant blends, and consonant digraphs to decode words.
• Use knowledge of short, long, and r-controlled vowel patterns to decode and spell words.
• Use information in the story to read words.
• Use knowledge of sentence structure.
• Use knowledge of story structure and sequence.
• Reread and self-correct
• Use vocabulary from other content areas.
• Ask and answer questions about what is read in fiction and nonfiction.
• Locate information to answer questions.
• Describe characters, setting, and important events in fiction and poetry.
• Identify main idea in fiction and nonfiction.
• Summarize stories and events with beginning middle, and end in the correct sequence.
• Draw conclusions based on text.
In Science this week, we will continue learning about magnets.
This week in Math the students will work with fact families. In Social Studies the students will finish exploring diversity and take their first test on Friday.
Please help your child study for this test using the study guide in their agenda.

“Every mountain top is within reach if you just keep climbing.” ?Barry Finlay (Kilimanjaro and Beyond)
We are continuing on our path up the fourth grade mountain. We have another busy week ahead of us. Please note interim reports will be sent home on Monday, October 5, 2015. It is hard to believe we are at the half point for the first nine weeks. Our time together continues to move all too quickly. Please review all of the information under each subject heading under my blog. Also please review my newsletter. There are times that things may be changed around, this is due to what information we are able to cover in class that day. If something is changed around it will be on the board, and the students will need to write it in their agendas. Please note the upcoming dates I have listed. Please add these dates to your calendars. The school fundraiser has started, and will end on Tuesday, 10/13/15. Please support our school with this fundraiser. We have also started collecting for the United Way Campaign. There was a flyer that went home last week. There will be a dance for the students on Friday, October 9, 2015. The cost is $2.00. Please consider supporting these worthwhile causes. As always if you need to talk to me please don’t hesitate to call, e-mail, write a note, text, or drop by, and I will do the same. Take care and have a great week.
Monday, October 5, 2015 – Interim Reports go home
Tuesday, October 6, 2015 – N.P.E.S Open House at 6:30
It is imperative that you study notes, daily. Even on the weekend. Look over your notes. Prepare for upcoming tests and quizzes. Homework is practice. Homework is graded on completion, not accuracy. However, all problems must be worked. Please see the Homework Policy in the front of the Math Interactive Notebook. Study your multiplication facts – Learn your divisibility rules.
Tests/quizzes are independent assignments. Take your time and use your test-taking strategies.
