4th Grade News

Fall is officially here! It seems difficult to believe that October is upon us already. The students and I are really moving along well in class. I have to be the luckiest teacher in the world to share my room with this group of amazing kiddos! Wow! 

There are some important dates that I would like to bring to everyone's attention, as well as an update on academics in the classroom. That being said, here you go:


Important Dates & Events:

  • Wednesday, October 4: Parent-Teacher conferences. No school for students.
  • Thursday, October 5: Parent-Teacher conferences from 4:00-8:00.
  • Monday, October 9: No school. West Side Schools Collaboration Day at Bishop Carroll.
  • Friday, October 13: School dismisses at 11:00.
  • Saturday, October 14: St. Jude Fall Festival

Curriculum Plan:

    • Math-  We will be finishing up addition and subtraction of multi-digit numbers and will start with multiplication and geometry.
    • Science- We are jumping into physical science and learning about how far a whisper can travel.
    • Religion- We will be looking at the Ten Commandments and creating a booklet to explain each commandment in detail.
    • Second Step-We are beginning Lesson #3. Students will learn about and the meanings of passive, aggressive, and assertive. 
    • Language Arts- Students are focusing on theme, inference, and narrative writing/fictional narrative.
    • Social Studies- We are taking a look at Kansas and how early Native Americans influenced the culture in our state. 


As always, please feel free to stop in and spend some time with us. These kids are simply amazing and will absolutely knock your socks off with their performance in the classroom. 

I kindly request that you continue to work with your children at home with math facts: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Most importantly, please focus on multiplication since we will be starting that unit quite soon. Know that the students and I are so thankful for all that you do in building success for our classroom and future(s). You are appreciated, parents!

Until next time,
