This week we are reading Adelina's Whales which is fiction.  It is an amazing story about the gray whale and human contact.  Students worked on their vocabulary in their interactive notebooks.  If they didn't finish in class, they should finish at home.  Adelina's Whales also uses fact/opinion to organize the story.  Students in periods 1 & 2 have worksheets to complete on f/o and multiple meaning words.

In grammar, we will begin helping and main verbs.  Students are still struggling with verbs, so please encourage your child to find the verb in any written material.  Test will be Monday March 12.

Spelling list 13 How Night... pretest will be Monday March 12.

As of now, Friday is a paid dress down day.  Yes, it is also Spring pictures, PBIS reward, and AR reward. 

Thursday, 4th grade will be listening to a guest speaker from Universal Forest Products.  Thursday is also "Dress Like Your Hero."  Heroes do NOT only include professional athletes, musicians, or actors.  Heroes can be firefighters, teachers, policeman, businessmen, moms, dads, plumbers, electricians, nurses, etc. 

NIEW papers were sent home today with your child's Friday folder.  Read the newspaper, have a parent initial the NIEW paper, and return it to school on Monday.

Tickets for Friday's girls' game are on sale in the high school.

Clocks spring ahead on Sunday, so children may wear appropriate school code shorts on the 12th.

Parents, please send in the money for the Chromebook for the class basket for the auction.  We have only received 3 peoples' donations.

Have a great day!
