First Trimester is coming to an end! Next Friday 11/11 is the last day of the trimester. I will not be accepting any make-up/late work after Wednesday 11/9 at 3:00.
The students had an hour of class time yesterday to check their grades, meet with me one-on-one, and work on any make-up work. Most of the students utilized this class time well... they located assignments in the no-name pile, found missing assignments in their desks/folders, organized their desks and worked on class work. Reflections need to be signed and turned in tomorrow.
Students are invited to stay after school tomorrow from 3:00-3:40 to work on any make-up work in the 4th grade classroom and discuss any questions that they may have about their grades. If students choose to stay, they need to come ready to work. If they are disruptive or off-task they will be asked to go to daycare.
Thank you all for the follow-up and support at home! I know that 4th grade is a big jump from the younger grades in regards to homework, grading, responsibility and independence. We have spent a lot of time this year discussing topics like responsibility, accountability, time management, prioritizing, goal setting and making good choices. We are working hard to build good routines and habits in 4th grade! The students are all making progress. Sometimes the best lessons are learned through failure or making mistakes. It is a marathon, not a sprint... they will get there! :)
I look forward to sharing your child's successes with each of you at parent/teacher/student conferences in 2 weeks! See link above to sign up for a time. (If you don't find a time that works for you, let me know and we can work something out) Students SHOULD be present at conferences.
If your child is going to daycare during conferences, let Coach Ramsey know that it is for a conference!
Nursing Home Visit - I was so proud of the students last Friday for their positive participation during our visit to the nursing home. The class brought so much joy to the residents!
We are doing a weaving project next week as part of our California Native American Studies unit and we need solid colored yarn. If you have a spool that you do not mind donating to the class, we would appreciate it! Thank you!
