Dear Parents,

SCHOLASTIC BOOK ORDERS DUE TOMORROW!

The fourth grade presented Mrs. Gigante with a Principal's Pizza today for Principal's Day. Each student chose a word to describe Mrs. Gigante and made a small illustration on a round piece of "pepperoni". The sentences they created were included in the Menu of the Day and presented with the pizza. Hopefully we can take a picture tomorrow to share. 

We are busy rehearsing for Sister Cathy's retirement celebration on Tuesday. The illustrations and suggestions for what to do during retirement are wonderful and heartfelt. They will be compiled in a book from the entire school. 




AFTER SCHOOL HELP IN MATH will be held every Wednesday. Pick up time will be 3:30 . Thank you! 

Raffle Basket Theme: LET IT SNOW -Winter items .Anything sent in will be given to our class parents!

MATH  :We will be reviewing multiplication with expanded form as well as the "box" method of multiplication. The new lesson of mental math strategies can be a bit challenging. A RETEACH worksheet will be given out to keep in the workbook for assistance. By week's end we will be solving word problems with multiplication and move right into regrouping. (Please note: I am skipping the partial product method for now as it causes great confusion. This can be revisited when they feel more secure with their multiplication. ) 

TIMES TABLES :   PLEASE CONTINUE TO REVIEW AT HOME!!!  The chapter assessment may prove difficult for those who are weak in this area.
