This Week in 4B...

   We have a busy week!

Tomorrow we are having a PJ day!
Students will get to be cozy and have some extra independent reading time to celebrate their success in 4th grade.  This will also help them catch up on their 30 Book Challenge.  We have talked about how they should have about 15 books read so far.  I have been conferencing with students but if you would like any suggestions for reading at home let me know.  I am happy to send home some just right books to work on their challenge over break.

Wednesday-Opinion Writing On-Demand (I will send home a prewriting activity to get their thoughts going for homework Tuesday night.)

Thursday-Unit 8 Math Test (Study Guides are due tomorrow so that we can check over them and answer questions)

*With all our our assessments this week, we have NO SPELLING  I thought they could use the extra time to study.  :)

         Lunch 12:10-12:50
            Early Release  1:15
