Hello Parents and Guardians! Here is what everyone can expect for Reading this week!

This week we will be continuing with our new class read aloud book, "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever"! The students have really enjoyed what we have read so far in this story and we are excited to see all the adventures that the Herdmans are going to take us on! We plan is to get through chapters 3-5 of the book this week. So feel free to ask your children about this hilarious and wonderful book! We will also be working on our Christmas elf trap projects! Students were given checklists last week to help them keep track of the requirements for this project and students may also find the requirements and helpful tips for this project posted in their Google Classroom accounts. This project is based from our class read aloud from last Friday, "How to Catch and Elf". As a reminder, these projects are due December 7th, 2018 (this Friday). We are greatly looking forward to helping students set up their traps and we hope they catch an elf! Happy Elf Hunting! 

As always, we are continuing to encourage students to think critically about their reading and to continue to challenge themselves as readers! We always allow students plenty of time during each day to independently read, however, we also encourage them to read at home. (As a reminder, end of quarter is December 18th. Therefore, it is our hope that all students reach their AR Goals). 

We are very proud of 4th Grade and look forward to another great week! Please take advantage of the impact you can make at home as well! Please try to encourage your children to read at home as well as at school, or perhaps try to read to them! Even if it's just 10-15 minutes, it can make such a difference! 

If you have any questions or concerns, please make sure to contact your child's teacher.
