Amy Venable - Fourth Grade  (Send e-mail)

Welcome Back! It is hard to believe we are already halfway through this school year. This is about the time I have a chat with our students about "halftime". Our kiddos are halfway through fourth grade, elementary school, and childhood! It's such a precious time for parents and their children. Please take some time to reflect on all the wonderful qualities and growth that has taken place throughout the years. Report cards will go home this Friday- I'm so proud of the excellent effort each child has shown throughout the year.

Advanced ELA: We will begin our 3rd quarter with a novel unit using the book Bud, Not Buddy. Please check your child's folder for info on the novels being utilized, as well as the standards we will address throughout this quarter. Thank you so much for supporting our students with the diorama project. They turned out great and each student was very proud to become an expert at our Zoo!

Math: We will continue with fractions this week- our focus will be on comparing fractions, adding, and subtracting.

Social Studies: Great job on the Southwest region. We will begin the West in a few weeks.

Science: What's That Smell??? is an experiment our kiddos will participate in this week. Please consider attending our Body Exploration Night, hosted by the FSP on Thursday night- see Important Dates for more details!



Governor Pat Quinn signed Erin's Law in January of 2013, which requires all schools in the state of Illinois to provide age appropriate sexual abuse and assault awareness and prevention education programs for their students in grades Pre-K through 12.
