Topics of Learning

*Ways that you can help

 
Math – We are working on addition and subtraction of fractions and mixed numbers. 

 

ELA – We are working on Text Dependent Analysis: using evidence from an author’s article or story to support our thesis.

 

Science – We are continuing a unit on living organisms.  Please help your child learn the information by asking them to explain what we are doing in class; their journal and textbook contains this information.

Spring Pictures 

Spring pictures were taken on April 12th!  You will soon have the opportunity to purchase these if you choose to.  Several students asked about getting a copy of our class photo.  If you did not buy one the day of the photo shoot you can still order one online at www.strawbridge.net .  Follow the ONLINE instructions to pay by credit card.  Enter this code when prompted:  103062
This offer is good only until April 20th.




Help!


We are in desperate need of kleenex for our class.  I have been purchasing boxes since Christmas break, but you can imagine how quickly 20 students can go through these in a week!  Please send a box to school with your child when you can.  Thank you so much for your help! 








Testing

 

SCReady / SCPass

SC state testing of students will begin soon.  These are the dates that 4th graders at FPES will be tested:  April 27th, May 1st and 2nd, May 8th, and May 10th.  You can help by ensuring that your child gets a good night’s sleep on the nights before testing as well as making sure they eat breakfast the mornings of the test.

Testing will begin promptly each morning at 8:15 so be sure your child is on time.   Students cannot enter class once testing has begun.  Thank you so much for all you do!
