Next week we will try to finish our novel, James and the Giant Peach.  It will be imperative for students to be good readers and good listeners in class so that they can do well on the final written test and AR test  We will work on story elements and vocabulary from James, in class.   If we finish the book, the test Friday will cover the main concepts of the whole novel. Try asking your child what they read in class and get him/her to retell it to you over dinner.
 
Grade 3 will continue working on the Skeletal System in science.  Students will have a written test on Tuesday.  A review is coming home today to study.  Please study.  The last timed test for multiplication before Christmas will be on Wednesday.  I will average in the top 4 grades as 10% of the math grades.
  
Grade 4 will continue working on the layers of the earth and rocks and minerals. Students in 4th grade will have a written test on Thursday.  A review will go home on Monday.  They will have the last timed test before Christmas break on Wednesday.  I will average in the top 4 grades as 10% of the math grade.
 
Ar goals need to be met by 12/19.  Don't forget this counts as 10% of the reading grades.
