In Writing and Science, we are near completion of our Slide presentations. The presentations present facts about an animal. Students have been doing a super job researching adaptations, ecosystems, and life cycles of their animals. Presentations are due Tuesday, May 2.
This week we will use our spelling to complete a comprehensive review of terms students have learned throughout the year. Spelling, vocabulary, and grammar tests are Thursday, May 4.
We will also review science this week and take a unit test on Thursday as well.
As always, students may write their spelling words ten times each to earn five extra points on their spelling tests. Work that is 69 or below may be corrected for an improved grade of up to 70 (except unit tests). Corrections must be made on a separate sheet of paper.
Have a great week!

We hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving Break! We will have Spelling, Vocabulary, and Grammar tests this week on Thursday, December 1. Remember words are also posted on Spelling City. Also, your fourth grader has a study sheet that we complete in class on Monday, then another on Wednesday.
Grades below a 70 can be corrected! Please encourage your student to correct Spelling, Vocabulary, and Grammar tests that may be below a 70. This greatly improves their grade.
Extra credit is offered! Students can earn 5 points extra on Spelling tests. Encourage your fourth grader to write their words 10 times each, turn them in during the week, and earn an extra 5 points on the Spelling Test!
Looking forward to a great rest of the six weeks! Fourth grade will be busy! Fourth graders will take their Writing Benchmark exam on December 13th. This is a practice for the STAAR in March. We will attend Frontier Texas in Abilene on December 14th (details to follow). Parents are very much welcome to come, too! Christmas parties will be December 15. Early release is December 16.
